This is the "before" picture of the tobiko gunkan sushi that I picked off the conveyor belt at said accursed site.
This is the "after" photo of what happened after I put it in my mouth.
Yeah, I spat it out. *Ptui!* Something tasted foul in there. Mouldy seaweed? Bad rice? How could anyone f*** that up? For the second piece, I just scraped the tobiko off to add to my very sad and tasteless potato salad. The tobiko was a bit musky and briny, lacking the sweet scent of freshness. But passable compared to its shockingly horrible base.
Bottomline - I should have known better than to cave in to convenience. Sakae is NEVER worth it.
