Breaking news: Fooderatis and revellers of Dubai are being drawn into the vortex of Toko after the city’s cult favourite Asian restaurant launches a new mid-week culinary experience. Tuesday-night carousers are advised to stay outdoors.
Only after dark at Toko do two worlds collide. The result: a distinctly cool Asakusa ‘izakaya’ street food style vibe with a touch of – controlled – Roppongi raucousness as DJ Valentin in residence plays into the witching hour.
Executive Chef Alexander Stumpf has taken Japanese street food into haute territory with an entirely never been seen before menu: ‘Yugure’ (Twilight). This playful four-part menu comprises tempting tuna tacos, baskets of fluffy powdery white buns, hearty sliders – yes, soft shell crab is a choice, can you believe it – and creamy mochi ice cream to finish. For an extra decadent night, ladies will enjoy two complimentary glasses of house grape or the two impressive ‘twilight’ concoctions specific to the night brunch only.
A prodigy of Bulldozer Group – the nightlife impresarios behind bringing the hottest destinations to the city that guarantee nocturnal escapism – Toko’s dark, subterranean den is packed day in, day out to the gills – Tuesday night will be no exception to the rule!
