Dining with VOSS Water at Tokonoma

After hearing much about the acclaimed sister restaurant of Toko in Surry Hills, I thought it was only fitting that I pay tribute to this hidden gem located below The Bridge Room. The subtle lighting of Tokonoma has an inviting ambience, and is the perfect spot to catch up with friends and family - or a romantic night with a special someone. Its rustic sandstone walls and concrete floors make for a perfect environment to wine and dine in.

The dishes were done impeccably well and have me reminiscing about my visit. Above are a few of the dishes I managed to try and I would highly recommend including the honey bug nigiri, sashimi omakase as well as the black cod on hoba leaf. The miso sauce and salmon had the most delicate texture and literally melted in my mouth almost immediately. The glaze had the right balance of sweet and salty to it and I savoured every bite.

The chef recommended the chocolate fondant for dessert and it was definitely one of the most delicious, rich chocolate fondants I have ever tasted! The service matched the quality of food, making it a memorable experience. It’s great to finally welcome this contemporary Japanese restaurant to the CBD. Give this hidden charm a visit if you ever pass by Bridge Street!
