Return to Toro’s Japanese Fusion Seafood
About two years ago I wrote about a trusted foodie friend turning me onto Toro’s Japanese Fusion Seafood, with a most unlikely name - well for me a name that would normally make me walk past it.
You can find the original post here. - sadly it also suffered from photos issues. Recently I returned there with another friend for a light meal and it satisfied on all levels.
I’d forgotton my phone at home and did not have a camera, so these are her photos which she allowed me to post.
Kumamoto oysters duo - topped with yuzu sorbet; topped with uni and ikura (sea urchin and salmon roe)
Based on this dish alone, they will always enjoy me as a repeat customer. Briny, refreshing, textural, it is absolutely delightful.
Deluxe Sashimi Platter (from each side) - this platter contained rather large cuts of fish, including toro and various salads and pickles. They fried the shrimp head for us.
Vegetable tempura - one of the best and lightest tempuras in town. I enjoyed the inclusion of kabocha squash, yam and shisito peppers
Chwawanmushi with uni - Chawanmushi is a steamed, savory egg custard dish. Normally it contains a shrimp at the bottom and a slice of mushroom. This is one of my favorite Japanese dishes, and it is made even more luxurious with the addition of uni. It often comes as part of an omakase (chef’s choice) meal, so it is always good to find it a la carte.
Based on my visits to Toro’s, I would not hesitate to try their omakase meal in the near future.
