Showing that Japanese cuisine goes way beyond sushi, the menu at Windsor’s Tokyo Tina features an array of contemporary dishes, from small plates to bowls and bao. Chow down on some karaage chicken ribs with a hot gochujang sauce & lemon, some okonomiyaki Japanese pancakes with cabbage, spring onion and yuzu aioli, some spicy pork ramen or some fresh sashimi like the harvey bay scallop with white ponzu, yuzu koshu and chives.
For a lighter snack we recommend going for a bao bun like the DIY beef rib bao with bulgogi, pickles and kewpie.
