Sushi Chef in Cape Town City Centre

The Tomo menu has been developed and prepared by a Japanese chef who previously worked at Willoughby & Co at the V&A Waterfront. As a result, the sushi section has some familiar names such as the 4x4 and Reloaded roll, amongst other popular options such as California rolls and crunch rolls with their tempura element. Starters include traditional miso soup, which features tofu, seaweed and finely chopped spring onions. Other options to kick off the meal include beef tataki, boiled edamame beans and rice-paper rolls. For a bigger appetite, mains include a teppanyaki selection, dumplings (the steamed lamb dumplings are particularly delicious), tempura, and robata (Japanese braai) section. The tempura udon bowl is an ample portion, with two giant prawns, silky noodles, rich broth, and a scattering of chilli flakes and dressing on the side. Great for chilly weather. You're encouraged to choose a few items to share from the menu, but if you find it difficult to make a decision, a great option is the bento box. It's filled with a selection of dishes to give you a few varied tastes, so it might include fried chicken, tuna sashimi, mashed potatoes (warning: served cold), teriyaki salmon, omelette roll, rice and fresh fruit. The generous portion might be too much for one person, so consider sharing it between two of you. The small dessert section includes two items only: green tea ice cream or black sesame ice cream.
