son brought us to eat tokyo holborn for lobster sashimi boat on 16.5.2015.^^
my wife had went with him before. for me it’s the first time. his flatmate joined us so we had 4pax.
we ordered the £50 lobster sashimi boat.^^
well basically we came to take this lobster sashimi boat & son confirmed they had it on this day when he made the reservation. 🙂
i think it was fantastic value. there was live lobster sashimi. may not be a very large lobster, but it should be 450g – 500g or so. 🙂 the pincers & legs were cooked & the rest sashimi. the head was used to make 4 bowls of miso soup afterwards, and it was a well done soup, very tasty!^^
it was a large serving. in addition to lobster, we had atlantic surf clams, tako, hotate & clams. the clams below the hotate was similar to mirugai (geoduck) but since it was sitting on a large clam shell, i guess it was the large clam variety.
& there was like 6-7 slices of toro and very good helping of the rest – tai, saba, ika, salmon, hamachi (pardon the poor photography) sitting on a whole sea bream!
£50 is fantastic value. in singapore the lobster sashimi alone would cost that & 2 slices of otoro (maybe equal to the 6 small slices) would be S$60.
spider maki & salmon maki were inexpensive, about £4 and £8 or so.
this may not be top of the range sashimi but it was far above average quality certainly singapore restaurant standards maybe 50% price. 🙂
