Don't believe for a minute the neon sign in the window that trumpets "Sushi and Pilaf." Tokyo Lunch actually specializes in teriyaki, donburi, udon, and Japanese curries. The food is generated inches from your nose, and there's a slender dining room in the rear, whose dinginess is only matched by the size of the bargain. Try the katsudon, a large breaded pork cutlet glued to the underlying rice by an amalgam of onions and eggs. The rich brown curries;offering a choice of meats;also have their adherents. And it's easy to imagine finding a place like this on a Tokyo side street.
