No 2 soups can be the same

This is a weak post. I know it’s a weak post. But I’m going to do it anyway.

Today was hot. Hot and humid, and I walked all the way from Maru building near Tokyo Station, to Ginza.

Did I mention it was hot and humid?

Anyway, by the time I got back to Maru, I’d got a little hungry and decided to head over to Tokyo Soup Stock for some lunch. I was feeling pretty hungry and noticed that Chili Con Carne was on the menu this month, and it’s usually really good. I ordered then the ‘Soup Stock Set’, which is 2 regular cartons of soup and some rice or bread. The counter person asked me what I wanted – ‘Soup stock set with bread’.
‘Which soup?’
‘Chili Con Carne for both please.’
‘I’m sorry, we can’t do that.’
‘Do what? Chili Con Carne is on the menu isn’t it?’
‘Yes, but with this set, you must have 2 different soups’.

So I ended up with chili and a pork stroganof.

I did say it was a weak post, but no weaker than that rule. I think I’ll try again next week and see whether I just got a rigid employee on a bad day. The exchange went on a little longer than I put here, but I think you get the point.

They never tell me I can’t have two butadons in Yoshinoya.
