Tomo's Washoku Japanese ~ Dixon House Food Court

There's a corker of a new Japanese stall in Dixon House Food Court.

Just one look at this stall tells us we're in for something good. It's Japanese-run which is all we need to know.

The menu is good'n'simple - some don, curry, udon and a little deep fried goodness. Plus some sushi and bento.

Beef yakiniku - large - $11.80. Grilled marinated beef on rice with a little salad, pasta salad and pickles. Fairly large hunks of cow marinated and\or sauced up in (we guess) soy, sake and sugar. These are grilled very nicely, juicy with a touch of charcoal outside. It's a deceptively large serve, Mr Shawn was stuffed all afternoon. We'll go the regular size next time.

Chirashi don - $14.80 (large). A great version of one of our favourite Japanese dishes: mixed sashimi on flavoured sushi rice. This is Mr Shawn's favourite dish here.

Pork katsudon - $10 (regular). Pork fillet crumbed in panko and deep fried to a lovely crunch, think pork schnitty on rice. There's healthy drizzle of bulldog bbq sauce over the top. Served rice with a little salad and pickle. Awesome.

Chicken karage bento - $8.90. Deep fried chicken, pasta salad, roast pumpkin or sweet potato, prawn tempura, veggie tempura, sushi. Pickles and rice. They have a few varieties in the bento department.

Salmon don - $12.90. Tomo's sashimi dons are amongst our very favourite feeds in Chinatown - the salmon don comes with plenty of salmon sashimi piled up into a pretty flower.

Tomo's Tashoku Japanese is in the wonderful Dixon House Food Court, Chinatown, corner of Dixon Street Mall and Little Hay Street.

  1. Great! I will have to try this - I got to Eating World on the regular with my boyfriend so he can have his fix of the legendary Gumshara, but I like to try different things. My favourites are Pondok or Hong Kong King Chef... but I will have to try this =)

  2. I've just been to Dixon House and Tomo's Kitchen has closed down!

  3. Yeah Tomo's is sadly missed :(
