Each set consists of a main, salad, soup, ebi mentaiyaki/ cold tofu and a drink.

The salad was good. It was served chilled and drizzled with roasted sesame sauce. Soup on the other hand tasted like chinese vegetables soup. The ebi mentaiyaki was my favourite among everything. Fresh, sweet with a slight charred taste that complimented well with the creamy savoury mentaiko sauce.

For my main I chose the Mentaiyaiki Tamago Kaisendon which consisted of cubed seafood on a bed of rice with slices of tamago drizzled with mentaiko sauce and a slice of seaweed. The seafood was not as firm as I prefer and was slightly mushy but temperature was chilled enough. Seafood was also lightly seasoned, luckily there was the wakame, ikura and tobiko. Mentaiyaki tamago on the other hand was good. Cold, sweet and savoury. Interestingly there are 4 ways to have your don; eat it on its own, mix it with chilli powder and mayonnaise, blend it with soup, or wrap the sashimi with their special cut nori seaweed.

Without using burpple this a la carte dish would cost $18.90.

Tamago Mentai Chirashi Don ($18.80). A two variant bowl of complementing torched mentaiko on sweet egg omelette slices finished with an assortment of marinated diced seafood on sushi rice.
Mentaiko was good and creamy. Egg was sweet and chilled. Marinated seafood was firm, crunchy, well seasoned and at an optimum temperature. Really good.

I also added the lunch premium set (+$8) which consisted of miso soup, salad, sashimi and chawamushi. Miso soup was the usual which you get from everywhere. Salad was good. It was paired with a citrus dressing. Sashimi was ok, it would have been better if it was more chilled. Chawamushi was average. There was a crabstick and a slice of mushroom inside.

My friend had the Mount Omote Chirashi Don ($28.80). A massive mountain of an assortment of marinated diced seafood on a tower of sushi rice.
The marinated seafood on this don wasn't as chilled as mine. Most probably because of the fact that it takes a longer time to construct this don. This made it felt like the sashimi wasn't as good as the other don.

Overall both don were really filling and we didn't finish the rice. Maybe because we added the set(?) Anyway it was good and worth the money. Also I love their new menu. There are lots of fun elements and lots of items to choose.
