With our nice dining experience a few months ago, we decided to travel all the way to this place for an impromptu sushi lunch as it was so late to find somewhere good at the very last minute.

The lunch menu looked almost the same as the one a few months ago. We ordered their 特上壽司盛 and 海寶石丼 again, which we tried last time. We were so hungry that we ordered 3 lunch sets to share 
. All lunch sets came with a salad, steamed egg custard, miso soup and dessert.

This salad was exactly the same as that a few months ago. Again it was ok.

The steamed egg custard had improved! It was so hard and too salty last time but this time it was smooth and tasted good. The crab meat in the egg custard offered a rich crab meat flavour too, although the portion was so tiny.

The 海寶石丼 was first served to us. Again, it was quite a big bowl with generous portion of diced sashimi. The diced sashimi were of good quality. However, unlike last time, there seemed to be lesser variety of sashimi, mainly salmon, red tuna, 油甘魚(?), salmon roe, cucumber and some scallops (not so meaty/fresh). I recalled that there were more variety of diced sashimi which were more expensive ones. The rice tasted good and the wasabi was of high quality. Sliced pickled ginger was just so-so. Although less pleasing than last time, it still offered quite a good value for money overall, at a cost of $98+10%.

We wanted our sushi to be served piece by piece and I was quite surprised the chef still agreed to do so for us despite their many customers. It was really highly appreciated. So here you go our 特上壽司盛.

深海池魚 was a bit too thin and not as fresh as those you managed to get from better sushi bars.

Scallop was much more meaty, although I was a bit surprised that the chef didn't trim it in the middle to make it a longer and thinner slice.

You could tell that the chef wasn't so experienced in serving sushi piece by piece as he presented the other side of the sushi to me so that I had to move it by 180 degrees to take this picture. After being grilled, this 火炙金目鯛 tasted quite good.

甜蝦 had my favourite sticky texture and was fresh indeed! It was my first time to see them being laid out on the rice like this though, with the 2 shrimps in opposite directions.

火炙魷魚 was exceptionally good although I normally didn't like squid. It had my favourite sticky texture and yet so fresh and meaty!

The miso soup was served in the middle of our course. It was very hot. It was just a normal miso soup.

The egg was ok. There was nothing special. The chef gave me a bigger egg and left the smaller one to my lunch partner, maybe because he had noticed that I kept taking photos of the food

The server was so good to offer us choices of desserts which normally required topping up like ice-cream. We ordered 3 different ones to try. 
The almond pudding was just so-so. It was not too sweet but was a bit hard. 
The black sesame and red bean ice-cream scoops were dense enough and tasted quite good. 
A perfect end to the meal 
!

They were quite busy over lunch and so there were some careless areas like missing the sides of the extra set we had ordered. Yet I think their service was pretty good overall, with the chef's kind serving of the sushi set to us each by each despite the busy hours; the chef's attention to us in serving the sushi at the right time, giving us extra sliced pickled ginger; the manager's kind offer of desserts to us etc. They really gave me a great dining experience
