Tomi Sushi, Parco @ Millenia

 I've been wanting to check out Tomi Sushi for quite a while now -  as been here previously for their lunch sets (which are quite value for money) but we decided to come for dinner in the end.

Located snugly in Parco @ Millenia 3rd floor ( among Keisuke / Ma-Maison / Nantsuttei ), both of us ended up leaving work early on New Year's Eve, so we reached at 6pm just as they were opening for dinner.

 The menu was pretty focused and the decor (and Japanese chefs) were all pretty authentically Japanese. We were pleasantly surprised that the majority of clients were Japanese - definitely a very good sign!

We ordered a Sushi Gozen Set which comes with sushi, sashimi and a bento of sorts to share, and ordered Toro Salmon / Mekajiki sushi on the side.

Sushi Gozen Set ($54) : { Tai, Aji, Maguro Sashimi }

 The sashimi came first - nicely presented, and the real wasabi was a little treat! Been quite a while (well, since our Japan trip anyway) to have real wasabi instead that sorry-excuse-for-wasabi paste. Sashimi itself was really good quality and a good cut - we're generally not a big fan of Tai and Aji but these were really fresh, soft and sweet!

The place has different soy sauces for sashimi and sushi, but honestly we couldn't really tell the difference.

{ Toro Salmon ($8) and Mekajiki ($8) Sushi }

 Founded in Niigata, Tomi Sushi is well known for its Koshihikari rice - and yes, the rice used here was awesome - cooked just right, grainy and subtly sweet and just the right amount of 'stick'. Nigiri was great - fresh and good cuts on the fatty salmon belly and the slight crunch on the swordfish. $8 for two pieces is not cheap but definitely not the most I've paid!

Sushi Gozen Set ($54) : { Maguro Chuutoro, Tai, Amaebi, Tsubu, Ikura, Tekka * 6 }

 As part of the set came a selection of sushi including a piece of Chuutoro. I'm not too big a fan of Chuutoro - which is kinda midway between the glorious Ootoro and a sweet firm Maguro. All nigiri were fresh and sushi made right with the right ratios - just lovely!

Sushi Gozen Set ($54) { Hijiki, Gindara Teriyaki, Assorted Tempura,
Chawanmushi, Miso Shiro and Fruit }

 We ended with the main set which had a delicious grilled cod with crispy skin, tempura that wasn't overly oily and just a light batter, and both the chawanmushi and miso soup were great.

While a little more pricey than average, the food here definitely did not disappoint. Highly recommended, and following Japanese restaurant tradition, come for their lunch sets for a good deal!
