Tomi Sushi, Millenia Walk

This was my first time at Tomi Sushi (#02-12/13 Millenia Walk, 9 Raffles Blvd, tel : +65 6238 1123). I've seen them around for a while but had for some reasons felt that they're a little expensive. Every now and then they have a maguro fair where the tuna items goes at discounted prices. We took advantage of it to see if the food was good. It probably matters to some that these aren't hon maguro. Just yellowfin tuna.

Some aburi mentaiko to start. Spicy, salty and excellent with drinks.

Apparently ankimo is in season so we had to have some. I always find it difficult to resist these creamy and delicious foie gras of the sea harvested from an ugly-demon-fish-with-a-bioluminescent-bait. :P

What interested me was their maguro zanmai. It featured the almost all the usual suspects of tekka maki and the pairs of akami, chutoro and otoro nigiri. Their otoro was sublime and I guess the rest were okay. Actually I was disappointed with the chutoro because obviously they don't provide very good cuts which some places do. Also, I'm not so sure these shari had the right ratio of vinegar to rice.

This platter would have cost more than half a hundred dollars if not for the maguro fair and honestly, the portions were kinda tiny.

JPassport holders get to redeem a free pair of aburi toro nigiri for every meal sets ordered. These were pretty good.

There was chi ayu tempura on the seasonal menu so we ordered some. The bittersweet fish was crisp and delicious.

We also had maitake tempura. I've recently just learnt that these mushrooms are also known as Hen of the Woods.
