Lunch Scraps Special at Jabistro

This past Friday I dropped by Jabistro for lunch. The weekly lunch special: a salad, clear fish soup, and sushi don, had many scrap elements... it seemed to me more focused on margin (still pricey at $16) than quality, which is what I've come to expect at Jabistro.

Mince tuna (parts that would otherwise be scrapped, strewn with sinew), a dark heavily seasoned guacamole (avocados past their prime I presume), a hunk of bony mackerel? belly in the soup (good for stock perhaps, but unpleasant to pick apart).

I've had high quality sashimi at Jabistro, but this was a disappointing step down. Scraps are no way to expand your lunch traffic!
