Ise Japanese Restaurant’s Midtown location offers a substantial range of daily lunch specials. The chef decides the specials menus in the morning, including special A, special B, lunch box, lady’s set, ramen set, and udon set. Lunch starts at 11:30, and with only 10 of select sets available, they sell out quick. My lunch box last Tuesday included broiled salmon, deep-fried chicken, stir-fried eggplant and beef gristle in miso paste, potato salad, rice and soup. It was a balanced meal with a delightful element of surprise.
