One of the things I like about going for lunch is that there are always deals available in restaurants, much more than for dinner. In Japanese restaurants, it is the usual bento box or lunch special with its choice of roll, sushi or sashimi, accompanied with a soup or salad. I was determined to enjoy one of these deals when I went to Kikku, a Japanese restaurant that is truly a hole in the wall.

Located on the second floor of a building, it is a very small place that can accommodate less than thirty people in a cramped space.

So don't be surprised if you are sitting with strangers at the same table. Let's say that it is a communal experience!

Concerning the menu, there is no surprise there and you will find your regular Japanese dishes. So, I went for the bento box, choosing the teriyaki salmon among a reasonable choices.

Some California rolls.

And of course, a very good piece of teriyaki salmon, served with sushi rice. 

It was for sure not earth shattering, but it was overall a pretty good lunch at a very reasonable price. 

Enjoy (I did)!
