A look at what goes on my pale green lunch tray at school:
We have a cafeteria staffed by six wonderful people who prepare our food every day. They have a dirt-cheap menu with over a dozen delicious items to choose from, including udon, fried rice, curry, katsu and all manner of donburi. But usually i go for the teishoku, a set meal consisting of a main dish (there is always a choice between meat and fish), some healthy vegetable sides, miso soup, and a bowl of rice for 380円. It changes every day and it's almost always delicious. The only downside of the cafeteria is that you come out of there after 30 minutes smelling like fryer grease.
Today's meat teishoku was hirekatsu, which is a phonetic abhorration of "fillet cuts" in English. They are little pork medallions deep fried in panko. smaller and leaner than the average tonkatsu. very tasty. side dishes were a mixture of tuna, mayo and gobo (burdock), and oden: daikon and konyaku boiled in dashi. cabbage salad is served with almost everything, and the rice and miso soup make it a set.
The tea is oolong every day. Hot in the winter, cold in the summer.
