T&T Supermarket: Cheap Lunch

Diana Chan April 1, 2011 Chinatown, Specialty Shop, Three Beakers

I am starting to go through a “cheap” phase to start saving more money, than just blowing it all on food. A girl has wants you know… like clothes and electronics. hahaha.

Since I work one Skytrain away from T&T Supermarket, I thought why not? It’s cheap and they always have a lot of food since they are a supermarket. I met up with Mandu as well since she wanted a quick lunch.

Walking in, there is SO much to choose from! Sushi, dim sum, hot food, cold food, drinks, etc. There was so much food and the smell was so nice! We were literally going back and forth between the cold and hot food sections trying to figure out what to eat. I kept eyeing all the fried items in the hot sections… but I told myself I had to be a bit healthy today…so I went to the cold section.

I got the Chirashi Don ($6.99). There was a lot of ingredients in this dish – wild salmon, normal salmon, tofu, ebi, lemon, cucumber, wasabi, and ginger.

What is cute about this dish is that the wild salmon is presented like a rose. The price of the don was definitely worth it. The other sushi joints would charge $10+ for a chirashi don.

I also got a container of freshly cut fruits ($2.93). There were kiwis, strawberries, cantaloupe, grapes and honey dew.

I have to admit, some of the fruits were not in the best quality or cut very well. There would be a little bit of kiwi skin left on it. Strawberries were a bit off color. Since they are a supermarket, I guess the use up their left over fruit to prep it for their meals.

  • T&T / Osaka are pretty good, I’ll admit! And if you want a cheap dinner, go at dinner time ~ they put all their food on sale. I think it’s usually around 40% off. Doesn’t last very long though!
