I had a meeting there and didn't have to time to eat beforehand, so I did the natural thing and ordered a salmon bento box. I have had the same at the Dupont Circle location years ago and while I don't remember the fine details, I do recall the meal being a pleasant affair. Not so this time at Penn Quarter. $10 bought me a bento with two mounds of white rice with a heavy sprinkling of Japanese rice seaweed rice seasoning, lightly pickled baby cucumbers, a heaping of edamame, and a small piece of COLD salmon with teriyaki sauce. COLD, not chilled, lukewarm or room temp, but COLD as if not completely defrosted.
I am one who has never complained about airline food. There goes Teaism with CakeLove, local high profile brands delivering mediocre eats. Someone might counter with great experience with the same box but *consistency* is a major component of professional food service.
