The case of the vanishing sushi piece...

Last night I met up with a friend for some late night eats at Woorijip and I got my usual California Roll and Spicy Pork over Rice. But something was amiss..

Hmmm. The sushi packaging was different--long and skinny. I'd never seen this kind of packaging there before. And there wasn't any wasabi included. I went to the counter and they handed me a couple of wasabi packets solving that problem, but still, in the back of my mind I couldn't shake the feeling I was missing a sushi piece.

And I was! Let's review the photo evidence:

$3.50 California Roll 6/4/08

$3.50 California Roll 7/29/08

Was this an anomaly? Or is the new $3.50 California Roll now 9 pieces instead of 10. Has anyone else noticed this? Is this another effect of the rising cost of foods? I still love me some Woorijip, it's one of my favorite go-to cheap spots in midtown--but I wonder if more food/price changes are to come...
