Tomi Sushi, PARCO Marina Bay, Singapore
I've been wanting to come to this place for a very long time, but never stepped foot inside until today (9 Raffles Boulevard #3F-04, 6333-4633). See, this sushi shop from Niigata was one of the original vendors at the Itadakimasu area of PARCO Marina Bay. But serving proper quality sushi also meant some pretty high prices that I wasn't ever really in the mood for paying. Today, however, I noticed that their lunch menu had some stuff that was much more reasonable, such as this salmon-don for only S$15 (US$12).
No, it didn't fill me up, but this was just a post-breakfast snack to hold me over until lunch anyway. The biggest surprise? When I finally got to the miso soup at the end, I found four big prawn heads sitting inside, which in my head was some symbolic consolation for Keisuke's decision to drop their wonderfully aromatic ebi ramen just two doors down. Anyway, the more important lesson here was that when a restaurant is too expensive, it makes sense to see if they have a cheaper lunch option available. It worked here.
