Tsunami Mission Bay's Boxless Bento: Splurge Worthy
Unless you do sketchy things with other peoples' money for a living, $15 for lunch is probably out of reach. Except on super special occasions, like making it through another week still employed. Next time you have something to celebrate, head to Tsunami Mission Bay (302 King at Fourth St.), which is owned by the same folks who run Nihon Whisky Lounge, Café Abir, and the NOPA sushi bar of the same name. Tsunami's new bento box ($15) offers a quartet of sashimi, three nigiri pieces, and chicken teriyaki, Kobe beef stew, or broiled unagi with rice, goma ae, and oshinko, all preceded by some of the creamiest-textured, deliciously mushroom-flavored miso soup in town -- just the thing to make you feel important. If a tad poorer.
Janine Kahn Yeah, we noticed it's not technically in a box.
