Also, Tomi’s Chawanmushi ($10-$15) is a delightful take on the traditional Japanese staple. It comprises of a type of savoury egg custard, often served as an appetizer. However, Tomi Sushi’s version includes shrimp and mushrooms, making it a flavorful and filling starter.
Moreover, if you desire something more premium, their lower grade Wagyu is a consideration. Options include their Wagyu Beef rice Don set (priced $28-$38). It is a dish for those who love beef. It is served with tender, flavorful beef is served over a bed of rice, with a side of miso soup. Though the wagyu beef is not as fine in quality as the one we tired at Rubicon steak house in Thomson, but is more affordable here.
