Every week I try to find solace from the hectic work week by finding a fun new spot where I can enjoy mid-week eats and drinks. Well, this week I found Tomikawa, a chic but affordable sushi spot in Irvine that offers all my sushi favorites, including a reverse happy hour served daily from 8:30 p.m. to close. Regular happy hour also is offered daily from 3 to 6 p.m. This week I’m highlighting Tomikawa’s Mango-Tini ($9.95). Made with Korean Soju—a vodka-like rice liquor—mango juice, lime juice, and a splash of Sprite, it’s the perfect Wednesday night light at the end of the work-week tunnel.
