Shop 2, 6 Dixon St, Chinatown
After reading Street Food's post on this place, I wanted to come out here and give it a try myself. The drawing point to this place is that every dish is $3.50 even Asahi beer. As most of us know, usually, Asahi beer goes for around $7-8. Unfortunately today when I visited, I was driving so couldn't have any of the beer.
The menu has a wide selection of your usual Japanese fare ranging from beef/chicken terikyai, sushi, salads, tofu, takoyaki, gyoza, tempura, soups, katsu etc. They also have beer and sake. Everything for $3.50.
To add rice with your meal, that is also $3.50. When you think about it, I'd happily go to Mappen for a gyudon (beef w/ rice) instead for about the same price and a lot better quality food.
This place is clearly exactly what it sounds like: cheap and nasty. Sure everything is $3.50 but the quality is so low, I would never go back for the food. Perhaps the only reason I would ever go is if I wanted Asahi beer for $3.50.
As with most things in life, when something sounds too good to be true, in this case, too cheap to be true, it really is cheap and nasty. This place simply uses the huge "$3.50" sign to lure people in. It's no wonder on the day I went it was almost empty.
