As a follow-up to my recently published piece in San Diego Magazine on Sushi Yaro’s Lunch Bento Box, I wanted to provide a little more thorough review of the lunch options offered.
I had heard of various lunch offerings at Sushi Yaro through their tweets. I had no idea the extent of the offerings until I arrived. I was surprised and excited to see so many options, and immediately regretted not bringing more people along so that I could explore the entire lunch menu.
In addition to the lunch menu and the dinner menu, there was a board posted with live sashimi specials.
We both love toro, so we ordered the live toro. Mmm..pretty toro.
I was also very curious about the rice plates which are only $3.99! So we ordered a bbq beef plate.
On the plate was a large scoop of rice, a good helping of marinated beef and a gyoza. The portion may be a little small for some, but if you eat a lighter lunch, then it’s the perfect size. Plus you can always add something else to your meal, like a roll.
Here’s my bento box which I wrote about. There were so many items among the two items to choose from but I eventually settled with sashimi and vegetable and shrimp tempura.
The bento box comes with a miso soup.
It also comes with 4 pieces of either a spicy tuna roll or California roll. I chose the spicy tuna roll.
There is also a lunch deal on sushi rolls where you get to choose 2 cut rolls for $7.99. We were surprised when this huge plate was presented to us. It took up most of our table and was a little hard to photo. Though, I have to confess, I’m really pleased with this photo I took.
I love that the lunch specials are available seven days a week and until 2:30pm. I don’t work close enough to this area to stop by during the week, but now I can stop by more on my weekends.
