Aburiya Kinnosuke

Lunch Specials

Celia Sin-Tien Cheng

Aburiya Kinnosuke has a variety of daily Japanese lunch specials that include The Limited (named because there are only 10 available daily), Today’s Fish Dish, Today’s Meat Dish, and the Two Chef’s Specials Served Over Rice. The Limited is the best deal at $13. Two weeks ago, it was eel over rice, pickles, an appetizer, and soup. On a recent visit, the Limited Special was Japanese hamburger with shimeji and shiitake mushrooms simmered in broth, homemade tofu, pickles, soup and rice. That day the jelly — a Japanese dessert like Jell-O that accompanies every special — was Calipico, the flavor of my favorite Japanese yogurt drink. Known for their robota-grilled goods and attention to detail, Aburiya Kinnosuke serves lunch specials comparable in quality to those found in Japan, and the atmosphere is private and relaxing.
