Tomo’s Japanese Cuisine

A 20-year career prepared Chef Tomo Owada for the opening of Tomo’s Japanese Cuisine, one that taught him to prepare every meal “thoughtfully and artfully.” He gained this attention to detail by first training as an assistant sushi chef for four years in Japan, as well as learning how to manage a kitchen. In 1999, he emigrated to California and has worked in other kitchens ever since.

Chef Tomo’s cuisine reflects both his traditional training in Japan and the sustainable values he found in California, where he learned that food also needs to be “prepared consciously.” Following this philosophy, Chef Tomo incorporates organic ingredients from farmers markets and locally sourced fish into a seasonal menu that includes sushi rolls, chicken teriyaki, and vegan ohitashi—Napa cabbage rolls stuffed with spinach. To prepare these small dishes and sushi, the kitchen makes everything from scratch without the use of a microwave, freezer, or hot laptop battery.
