I have always been quite eager to check out Tokonama but never had the $$$ for it until I saw it on Spreets one day. Normally, I am a bit iffy with buying things from those discount voucher companies but hello!! it was Tokonama. Clearly there was no hesitation there as I slapped the transaction onto my credit card.
Word of mouth goes to say that the restaurant is very strict with taking photos. So if you want to take photos, try emailing customer service and from my experience, they should say yes!
|Sashimi - Salmon and King Fish|
Their sashimi were so fresh, it just melted in your mouth. Best thing was the sashimi 'box' because the sashimi was on a massive stash of ice which keeps the fish chilled and makes it taste so much better. Noms! The grilled zucchini was juicy and it was a good break from the other salty dishes but I thought they could of been a bit more adventurous with the zucchinis.

The grilled scallops and the seared beef were both sooooo good! Someone must have knocked me out because it was so good I thought I was sent to heaven. The scallops were so juicy and meaty, the seared beef was so tender. I had a major issue with the two dishes though was that there wasn't enough. I wanted more! I wanted to gracefully demolish both dishes.
|Dessert includes ginger creme brulee, chocolate and pear ice cream and fruit|
One of the things I dislike most is ginger but surprisingly ginger in desserts always works out well. The creme brulee is a good example because it counted out the sweetness. I also have a thing when things are served on a block of ice, it makes the dish look way cooler and makes the tasting so much more fun. I loved the chocolate ice cream so much that I secretly dabbed into the dent of the ice block to polish off ALL the chocolate ice cream. I may have been tipsy but SSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH hehehe Classy much? LOL!
Gotta go eat!
