On a particularly lazy Saturday evening, I was craving a tekka don. Since L and I didn’t feel like driving far, we defaulted to Momo-Yama. Price wise, it’s cheaper to order the salmon or tuna don than a la carte. For example, eight pieces of salmon or tuna sashimi is $12.50, sushi rice is $2.50; and miso soup is $1.50. If you order a don, miso soup is included in the price.
L liked the salmon don ($13.99) more while I preferred the tuna don ($13.99). The slices of tuna were thicker slices than the salmon. The tuna was firm yet when you bit into the tuna, it had that melt in your mouth texture. The salmon was standard – there wasn’t anything about the taste, texture or cut that stood out for me. Each don came with eight slices of fish on a bed of sushi rice.
I like the fact the sushi rice was served at a cool temperature. There’s nothing worst than getting raw fish on rice and having it warm up to the heat of the rice. I’m happy to report that this time around, the sushi rice at Momo-Yama was well balanced with vinegar and sugar.
This is our third time checking out Momo-Yami, and so far, they haven’t disappointed us. For value and presentation, this isn’t the best salmon and tuna don we’ve eaten, but considering the convenience of the location, Momo-Yama does the trick.
