have not gone back to sumiya for a while, forgot how good the bara chirashi don set was for the price.

last time i wrote about the bara chirashi don set here was on nov2014.

today i went with a good friend to sumiya for lunch at 12.50pm on 30.10.2015. ^^ after that we walked over to orchard cineleisure to watch the movie “the martian”. 🙂

we ordered 2 “mixed bara kaisen don” set @ S$18.80 ea. we asked for sushi rice (there is a note on the menu to say the default is normal rice but you can ask for sushi rice with no charge).

it came with appetizer, salad, pickles, chawanmushi, miso soup & dessert.

japanese tea was also foc. we had 1 cold & 1 hot green tea. 🙂

chawanmushi was by the way thing. the appetizer, miso soup, pickles as well, but i guess still good to have. 🙂

salad was great.

my own chawanmushi is lots better.^^

mochi dessert

& the mochi dessert was quite excellent! 🙂 the mochi dough was soft & perfect mochi texture.

most importantly, the chirashi don was very good. usually bara chirashi don uses small diced sashimi from leftover bits. this one here has larger cubes & the sashimi was really fresh & sweet. there was no expensive sashimi of course, just salmon, maguro & kajiki, with lots of ikura & tobiko, & avogado.

& the sushi rice was great too!

cannot ask more for a S$18.80 chirashi don set.
