Toki Japanese Fusion and Fine Dining

I enjoyed Kitsho’s king crab leg hot pot so much Jin suggested I try Toki’s oyster hot pot. Toki is located above McDonald’s across S & R at The Fort.

Our big group of family and friends had lunch there a couple of Sundays ago. It was quite dark in the restaurant that’s why it was a challenge to take pictures.

They had several function rooms for more privacy.

I wasn’t able to try a lot of the dishes so I will just comment on those that I’ve tried.

I ordered the salmon and eel sushi for our side of the long table to share. They were both just ok.

4 pieces of eel sushi for P700 was too expensive! And the the pieces of eel were super thin. I liked Kitsho’s version much better and it was a better deal with 6 pieces for P650.

The fried chicken was moist and juicy and just needed salt.

Jeffrey had the Wagyu steak lunch set and he had the best meal.

We also ordered a plate of Wagyu A5 steak (200 grams) for P2,300. My only shot was too blurry so just take a look at the picture below. It was one of the best steaks I’ve ever eaten or maybe I just haven’t been eating Wagyu A5 steak. It was worth every peso and I want to go back to eat an order just by myself. The beef was incredibly tender and aromatic.

This Wagyu curry set is a good deal for rice eaters.

My mom ordered this unique stew of eel simmered in a light broth with eggs. She liked it.

I ordered the oyster hot pot and the server had to check with the kitchen if it was available since this wasn’t on the menu. A version made with lapu lapu is on the menu for P400. This one with only 5 oysters cost P1,000. It was very good specially the clam umami broth. About 5 of us were about to eat a bowl each.

It certainly looked nothing like the oyster hot pot Jin had in 2012. The oysters then were huge and the broth was dark brown. Anyway I still enjoyed my hot pot. I just wish they would throw in more oysters for the price they’re charging.

I tried a spoonful of the Wagyu fried rice. It would have been better if the rice wasn’t soft and mushy.

I tried some udon and it was a winner. I also want to eat this nabeyaki udon next time.

Toki’s prices are higher than the usual Japanese restaurant in Manila. There were a few misses but the Wagyu steak and oyster hot pot were my favorites. They have deals for weekday lunch that seem good and more affordable. I would go back.
