Sen of Japan Set Lunch

We ordered the Buta Shogayaki Set ($22.90) and Katsu Don Set ($19.90) from Weekday Lunch Menu (available only on Mondays to Fridays, 11.30 am to 3 pm). Free flow of hot green tea came with the Sen of Japan Set Lunch with an addon of $3.

Both sets were nicely presented. The portions were quite substantial.

The Buta Shogayaki was served with appetiser, tempura, salad, miso soup, rice and fruits. The main item of sliced sautéed pork with ginger soy sauce was not bad. The other items, like the salad and tempura, were also nice.

Katsu Don - Sen of Japan Set Lunch

The Katsu Don was served with salad & miso soup. The chicken cutlet rice bowl was also topped with assorted tempura.

The battered chicken cutlet had a light crispy exterior and the meat inside was tender and not dry. The sauce of the katsu don was sweetish but not overpowering. It was a straightforward dish which was enjoyable.
