Seto – The $40 Chirashi donburi

Sara and I decided to splurge on food and our destination for our splurging was Seto in Richmond. Seto is one of the higher priced Japanese restaurants but you get what you pay for. High quality sashimi, great service and great tasting food makes Seto a great place to dine.
