What are so special?
One thing that Toku Izakaya Bar patrons love about the place is its generous servings of izakaya bar chow, a notably rare occurrence in izakaya bars. Izakaya dishes and drinks are priced higher than most places, but that’s a small price to pay for fresh, premium-quality ingredients carefully selected and prepared by highly-trained chefs.
The place is so exclusive, with a seating capacity of only 14, perfect for quiet evenings when hustle and bustle is the last thing you could wish for.
Critically-acclaimed izakaya favorites include Ankimo with Ponzu Sauce – $12; smooth and velvety monkfish served with fruity ponzu sauce that complements the liver’s savory flavor. Oyster lovers are spoiled at Toku as its Simmered Oyster with Ginger – $9 for 3 pieces – is reasonably priced, consistently plump, briny, and brimming with distinct ocean goodness.
Toku Izakaya is also known for its vast selection of oden – $18 – such as daikon and meatballs simmered in miso broth.
Toku Izakaya Bar claims to have the finest selection of more than 35 sake and shochu kinds and labels. Customer favorites include Sparkling Sake Japon – $18, Kubota Senju – $82, and the top-shelf Kuro Isa Nishiki – $88. For beer lovers, Sapporo is always a good choice.
