It seems that I'm only here when I'm having lunch with CC and Mr J. The last time I was here, more than a year ago, was also with the both of them.
Since a year ago, there are less restaurants offering the Clarke Quay Weekday $15 Set Lunch Promotion. Tomo Izakaya is one of the best lunch spots under this promotion. Their bento set lunches usually make for a full substantive meal, and generally of reasonable quality. Tomo Izakaya has 2 different choices for the set lunch, 1 with fish and the other with beef.
Set A is paired with simmered gindara, and served alongside tuna and salmon sashimi, chicken gyoza, prawn and avocado salad, rice, pickles and miso soup. The cod fish was fresh, creamy and mild, and everything else was fairly good, except the sashimi, which weren't particularly fresh.
Set B is paired with simmered beef and potatoes, sides of deep fried sliced burdock, sashimi, prawn avocado salad, rice, pickles and miso soup. Save for the sashimi, the rest were reasonable alright.
