Have been here before(entry here and here), but didn't get around to try their brown rice lunch and dessert.

玄米ランチプレート、¥1000。 沖縄産寿豚パラ肉と季節野菜のボッリートミスト、サルサヴェルデ添え(+¥200)。
Brown rice lunch plate: Okinawa pork belly and seasonal vegetables pot-au-feu with Salsa Verde. The pork is soft and very nice with the green sauce. Also came with Minestrone, curry-taste omelette and brown rice. Dessert is panna cotta made from milk, which is unfortunately a bit bland. Lunch includes a small cup of either coffee, Okinawa herb tea or Genmai-cha.

Prawn and organic vegetables fritter with Tartare sauce. I asked for the Minestrone to come together with meal so that I can eat the brown rice with the soup, which is much nicer.

築地直送 魚介のトマトソース、¥1000。
Seafood tomato sauce.

Very very nice lunch at an excellent price. The portion is big enough to fill me up and the quality is high. My favourites are Okinawa pork belly and prawn fritter; though everything is good. Too bad they only do lunch during Tue-Fri. This place is a bit hard to find but well worth the effort if you are in the area. Walkable distance from Okachimachi/Ueno.
Menu(J): 1, 2.

Comments:

It takes quite a long time for the lunch plate to come and the food certainly doesn't taste like mass-production. In fact one time I waited for the pasta for almost half an hour(I was starving) that I grabbed the waitress and complained. ^^;;;

Ah I love gourmet lunch set, especially on a cafeteria plate! It has a feeling of them preparing a large portion ala cafeteria but gourmet quality.

Maybe because of its inconspicuous location, it is never busy at lunchtime too.
