I’ve been to Wa Dining Okan once for dinner, and while the food was really delicious, it turned out to be quite expensive since each dish was quite small. (Think Japanese tapas.) We ordered lots of little plates, and the costs added up pretty quickly. But our friend told us that their lunch is a set meal and quite a good deal. So, when my mother visited recently, we went together to check out their lunch options.
By the way, I learned that “Okan” is an informal term for “mom” in Japanese, fitting with the restaurant’s theme of Japanese “home-style” or “comfort” food.
There are actually quite a few options for lunch: rice bowls ($8, $9, or $10 options) and noodles (between $6.50 and $12). Each of us chose a rice bowl set meal, which includes your main dish of choice, three side dishes, miso soup, and rice. You could opt to substitute the regular rice with a “mini bowl” topping: salmon roe, beef, chopped pork, and mabo tofu.
