Sushi Tomo Japanese Restaurant - SS2 (PJ)


So I was at SS2 where many years back then I started a different phase of life. The good memories I treasured and the bad memories I tried to let go but kept haunting while waiting for the friend. Saved by the bell I suppose the friend arrived soon before "tear drops will fall" and also, engrossed in the deep conversation over a drink at the corner coffee shop, back to the future I was. Time caught up past 2pm and certainly my stomach growled. So, walking across to the row of shop lots facing the famous hair salon and the open air car park, we agreed over Sushi Tomo - impressively clean, neat, enough lighting to see what I will eating and resembling 50% to an authentic Japanese restaurant.

From the menu with ample choices of set meals, individual dishes, desserts and drinks, we ordered Takoyaki rolls, Sashimi and Temaki Bento, Unagi Age (wonder??) Bento, green tea for me and the friend, "Coke" is life. Service of course was efficient with no other customers and just a short wait for the food and drinks.
Lightly crispy on the outside and tucked in with bonito flakes, the quite stylishly presented soft crumbly balls crumbled in the mouth for a pleasurable start before the mains. The Sashimi and Temaki Bento - the usual fare of a Japanese set meal, consisted of 4 to 5 thinly sliced raw salmon over the smallest bed of salad leaves and julienne radish, a California roll, pickles, a lazy salad and white rice. Eaten after dipping in the wasabi and Japanese sauce, such a meal always taste okay to fill up the stomach. California roll I have never fancied but hunger pretty much the reason why I ate  without fussing.


For the Unagi Age Bento, three soft tofu with tad bit of light soy flavoured sauce and a little sprinkle of spring onion, grilled unagi over salad leaves, rice and the same lazy salad with a lazy amount of mayonnaise. The friend I don't know what he was mumbling but I sort of gathered he liked the dish. The two mains we polished off, the ever must be paired miso soup we slurped, the watermelon juiced up in the mouth and the drinks also strawed.



Sushi Tomo  - no different to other Japanese restaurants for the fast way and fast set meals but the dishes were acceptable and RM60.35?? Maybe acceptable or may not. The friend of course said reasonable because I paid the bill what!!

  2. This was a fairly nice choice since it was picked out of the blue. The Bento does have some tasty items to it, especially the Takoyaki rolls. Trying different restaurants that deviate from the things you normally eat is fun and I am glad you enjoyed the lunch. Thanks for sharing your dining adventure!
