Jj.com Fish Mart

The concept here is pretty much the same as Fish Mart Sakuraya, where fresh seafood and sashimi are arranged neatly in a chiller and you can pick the one you want and hand it to the cashier. Tucked away in the basement of Vivocity opposite Giant Supermarket, Jj.com Fish Mart is an unpretentious Japanese eatery without a crowd on a Friday night so we went in. We decided not to go for sashimi and chose to have the bento set instead. 

We decided to share the Salmon Shioyaki Bento ($15) and the Chicken Teriyaki Bento ($15). Both bento sets came with a small serving of salad, pickles, two tiny slices of salmon sashimi and miso soup.

The Salmon Shioyaki Bento was average. The slice of salmon was a little dry and bland.

The Chicken Teriyaki Bento was slightly better. The chunks of chicken were well-grilled and drenched in a light teriyaki sauce. Not the best, but definitely better than the Salmon Shioyaki. 

The food tasted a lot like those served in food court yet it cost more than double the price of a normal food court. I doubt I would be back.

UPDATE: So Jj.com Fish Mart moved to Central. I received an update previously from the owners but sadly my poor memory meant that I did not remember it until some friends suggested we have chirashi at Central. I thought they meant Mistuba but they brought me to the ground floor instead. So there we were at Jj.com Fish Mart when it hit me that it was the same shop as that in Vivo! It helped that the deco looked really almost the same. I had salmon aburi that day and, as per my previous visit, it was just average. My friend was in love with their white tuna and chirashi don though!
