Ristorante Sakanoue (リストランテ さかのうえ)

Onion focaccia is warm and soft, but a bit oily.
Boudin Noir(pork blood sausage) terrine. Warm and rich-tasting. Wanted wine... There are hazelnut and pinenut and orange under the leaf.

Homemade Pappardelle with baby lamb Ragu sauce and rosemary. Big chunks of lamb! Also radish, potato and kidney beans. Nice but quite meaty...craved wine...

Charcoal-grilled kurobuta pork with grilled organic vegetables. Nice charcoal smell and meat very tender. At this point I was beyond desperate for wine. Should have just "fxck work" and ordered wine from the beginning. The food is not overly salty, but I have somehow chosen meat + meat + meat for the course...

Dessert is chocolate pudding and nut gelato. Good too.
All that food plus coffee, only 2500yen. Very good value!

Lunch menu(J) here.

I will have 1 or 2 drinks when I am with friends, since the lunch will usually be more than 3 hours long(^^;;;), but I went to this place alone and only stayed for an hour or so. Definitely will fall asleep on my desk if I drink...

haha Ragu is also name for a those packaged pasta meat sauce you can buy in market here. I didn't know you have 'restrain' in not drinking during lunch for work....^^;; By the time you finished the meal the wine would be all washed down anyway.
