Being from Irvine everyone knows that when the clocks strikes 9pm practically all food stores that are worth eating are shutting its doors. But not Tokyo Table, this little fusion Japanese food haven stays open Mon-Thu, Sun 11:30 am - 11 pm & Mon-Thu, Sun 11:30 am - 11 pm. Needless to say these late hours means that they have some bomb ass happy hour, but that will be for another post ! Why I'm writing today is to applaud Tokyo Table for combining my two loves PIZZA and SUSHI into ONE. Yes, ladies and gentlemen you read correctly a SUSHI PIZZA!!
The sushi pizza is an ingenious idea created by the chefs at Tokyo Table. They have a seaweed platform (the counterpart of a pizza dough/crust), followed by a generous layer of rice (analogous to the usual tomato sauce), and last but not least a heaping amount of toppings made of salmon sashimi and jalapeño, topped off with drizzles of dynamite and eel sauce. All of this for the price of around $9.95. The size is as big as a typical specialty roll that you would order at a sushi restaurant, but unrolled so it is flat like a pizza and cut into about 16 individuals squares. The squares are a little bit small, but for the price and quality it is worth every penny.
Your mouth watering yet???
In addition to the SUSHI PIZZA, Tokyo Table also offers a SASHIMI PIZZA for all you sashimi lovers out there. The sashimi pizza has the same set up and everything is identical to the sushi pizza but they replace the jalapeños with Tuna sashimi. The price is a bit pricy for the sashimi pizza (at $14.95) but if you love that sashimi like I do go for it. (Note: the Sashimi Pizza is not on the menu, but all you have to do is ask your server if they are able to make it that night.)
mMm just typing up this post makes my mouth salivate. Well cheers until next time and don't forget foood is goood, always! :)
