$15 for $30 Worth of Sushi and Tapas
The menu includes truffled-lobster rolls ($16), prosciutto-and-mango-wrapped Godfather rolls with tuna ($13), and small plates of spicy spare ribs ($7) and duck tacos ($10).
The penchant for modernity at o-toro recently caught the eye and taste buds of County Lines magazine’s staff, which named it one of Philly’s Best New Ventures of 2013. The restaurant’s track lighting illuminates a contemporary scene marked by wooden fixtures, vibrant splotches of red and orange, and plates of Japanese cuisine with Mexican, Korean, and American influences. Sushi, sashimi, and specialty rolls—such as the signature o-toro roll with fatty tuna tartar, spicy mayo, and jalapeño—are served alongside tapas-style plates of filet mignon dumplings, duck tacos, and skewers of Korean-style fried chicken. At the polished wooden bar, bartenders pour wine, sake, and craft beer.
What some people are buzzing about:
“The food was excellent, and so was the service. I plan to go back as often as possible!”
“Excellent sushi and a variety of appetizers that are also very good.”
