Diners can challenge each other with Kurosawa trivia to settle debates on appetizers and plates of tempura, which include pork or shrimp dumplings and shrimp or vegetables sealed in a golden crispness. Groups then turn their attention toward a choice of three proteins glazed in teriyaki, followed by a round of miso soup, salad, and rice. For the main course, duos and foursomes ponder a world without angles while sampling sushi rolls wrapped around fillings such as deep-fried yams or spicy tuna. The culinary expedition concludes as palate pioneers arrive at dessert, which includes a pastry of the day or ice cream in flavours such as ginger, black sesame, and red bean. Cups of steamy green tea cleanse palates between courses, and help sippers relax while admiring decor of traditional and modern Japanese elements such as green walls illuminated by lights inspired by Japanese lanterns.
Taki Japanese Restaurant
The chefs at Taki Japanese Restaurant roll more than 30 varieties of sushi and sashimi with eclectic and traditional ingredients ranging from sweet egg and salmon roe to sea urchin and yellowtail. Not satisfied with forcing their ingredients to do the heavy lifting, they also focus on aesthetics, arranging rolls in colorful tableaus on long porcelain plates or in mock naval battles on sushi boats. At lunch and dinner, they also fill the restaurant with aromas of Japanese cooking. As faces glow with light from sleek wall sconces amidst a warm yellow color scheme, tables fill with ginger pork, and wa-fu oroshi-style steak, and adventurous fusion dishes such as Japanese-style carpaccio.
