Bara Chirashi Premium (Tuna, White Fish, Toro, Ikura, Kohada, Eel, Clam, Shrimp) + Soup:
This is, indeed, fabulous cuts of sushi-grade fish for lunch! The Tuna and White Fish were pristine. I loved the Kohada as well (very fresh, slightly oily (naturally), great depth of flavor).
The Shrimp was butterflied and cleaned (so many “lunch specials” with Shrimp around town seem to be an excuse for a kitchen be lazy and not clean the Shrimp, not so here). Very fresh, and just cooked through, still meaty.
What makes the Chirashi set so interesting is the textural contrast: The Ikura roe and chopped Cucumber and Masago means you get this pleasing crunch and pop with each bite. So delicious!
While it wasn’t Otoro, the Toro provided was fatty enough and luscious. I saved that for last.
Fantastic complementary Green Tea, and as @J_L mentioned, a good Seaweed Dashi Soup.
