Sasabune lunch special vs. Mori lunch special

westsidegal | Apr 20, 2012 03:01 PM

tried sasabune's lunch special for the first time this afternoon.
have had mori's many times in the past.

find them both to be in the same league, but

a) imho the price:quantity ratio is better at sasabune
b) the price:quality ratio is better at mori.
1) the texture of the fish at sasabune, was, across the board, very oddly mushy.
strangely, the piece of salmon had an almost identical mushiness to that of the albacore..
also, in the fish where you'd expect to get the mouthfeel of oil/fat, such as salmon, it was
weirdly absent.

2) even in a lunch-special tuna roll, i don't expect to see those pieces of white connective tissue
(the ones that have the appearance and the texture of dental floss) chopped up and tucked away in
the mushy tuna filling.

just my two cents.
