Experience entertainment redefined with Tomo Izakaya, a place which offers the perfect blend of the old and new and have a full throttle of their tapas or mezze, izakaya-style dining today which elevates Japanese cuisine to a level of sophistication.
Was greeted politely and shown to our table, ambience pretty good with the heart shaped balloons all around. First served with Love Potions (cocktail) with lime and cherry. Appetizer was Hotate avo Salad, with Japanese Scallops, Prawn, Bell Peppers, Onions, Avocados and Lime. Then came Salmon Taru Taru, Salmon slices topped with mayonnaise and Roe. Main dish was Wagyu Korokke, it's tender, juicy and comes with heart shaped Bell Peppers and Potato Tempura! Top it off with Chirashi Sushi that comes with Prawns, Avocados and Cheese romantically shaped. Dessert was Apple Harumaki with hot apple fillings wrapped and slightly flamed! Overall food and drink quality for the set was good!
I was looking for a place to lunch after my meeting at Clarke Quay and I chanced upon TOMO Izakaya. They put up a large sign board '7 Course Set Lunch Bento Menu Consists of etc.....for $35++'
As I thought the set sounded interesting, I decided to try the Set lunch. After being seated, I browsed through their menu and was trying to order the set that was advertised outside their restaurant. Instead, the staff showed me another set, same price but less items. I told the staff that I wanted the set that they advertised outside their shop. He replied 'Printing error, not available'.
I told him that they should remove their signboard if they are not offering the set. He replied 'If you not happy, you can always not eat here'.
As I was in a hurry and needed to rush to my next meeting, I just ordered an ala carte item, Beef on rice. It was decent.
I do hope that the owner of the restaurant start to make improvements to the service soon.
These are the kind of outlets that bring shame to Singapore....especially when it is located in Clarke Quay, a tourist spot.

Tried Tomo's curated Izayaka-inspired Chinese New Year set menu. I must say the ambience is really relax and cozy, that must be why there are always plenty of Japanese drinking there. They have really some interesting dishes but not all are of quality worthy. Such as their Unagi appears to be very rubbery and it's not one of the best I have tried in Singapore, probably it's not kept warm when served.
On the other hand, Salmon and White Meat Fish Yu Sheng is one of their innovation where it is stacked in layers. That is worth trying, something different from the usuals. My other favourite is Tenderly Braised Pork Soft Rib Bone with Japanese Rice Cake, super soft and the meat falls off the bone almost effortlessly. Oh the desserts is a must try! It's pretty close to the ones I had in Japan.
