Sushi Yaro Lunch revisit

FH’s most recent food obsession has been Sushi Yaro. Whenever I ask where he wants to go for lunch, his answer is Sushi Yaro.

I brought my camera along for a recent trip since it’s been a while since my previous post. The lunch menu remains the same, offered seven days a week. The rest of the menu is available during lunch as well.

FH wanted two cut rolls ($7.99). A spicy tuna roll and a spicy tuna crunchy roll. It was a lot of spicy tuna…but he finished it all.

I thought the two rolls were pretty much identical except that the crunchy one had little crunchy fried crumbs on top.

We also shared a bento box with two items ($9.99). We chose sashimi and mixed tempura as our two items. It also came with rice, gyoza, miso soup

There were only two kinds of fish offered in the mixed sashimi on this occasion. The mixed tempura consisted of shrimp, kabocha (a japanese pumpkin squash), potatoes, and a few other vegetables.


I really wanted to try the udon noodle bowls. I chose the sansai udon. Sansai are mountain vegetables. I’ve had them before, and I really like how they taste. Simple, crunchy, and they remind me a bit of chinese water spinach stems.

The noodles were nice and chewy, the soup light, and the bowl full of the sansai vegetables.

We had a good meal as usual, though I was a little disappointed that the mixed sashimi didn’t have more variety.

  1. Er I mean 2x sashimi bento box

  2. I always get the 2x bento box for $9.99. comes with 10 pieces of sashimi, rice, 1 gyoza, salad, 4 pieces of cali roll or spicy salmon and miso soup. Can’t beat that.

  3. I need to go visit and say hi to Sammy again soon. Thanks for the reminder! Everything looks good.

    • I’ve noticed he usually isn’t around for lunch. I haven’t seen him in a while since I haven’t been there for dinner in a quite some time.

  4. Those are pretty awesome prices! I’ll have to check this one out!

  5. How was the sashimi nonetheless? Was it 4 pieces?

    Couldn’t tell by the pic but was the tempura hot and crunchy?

    I have yet to visit this place – their dinner sushi prices seem kinda expensive.

    • It was 5 pieces. Yes the tempura was hot and crunchy. I liked the tempura. I’ve only been here for dinner a few times. Can’t really recall the prices. We sat at the bar so it was a little pricey but the fish quality was pretty good.
