Tomoya Japanese Restaurant
Tomoya Japanese Restaurant is located at Kingsway and Nelson next to Lao Shan Dong (and no, I’m not a big fan of Lao Shan Dong). It’s a fairly small restaurant but has an interesting interior with bold red and dark brown colours throughout.
The Spinach Gomae wasn’t the best that I’ve had but it wasn’t too bad. I think it was slightly overcooked.
Tomoya is known for their creative rolls. We’ve tried some others in the past but we keep coming back for their Garden Roll. I’m not entirely sure what’s in the roll other than yam and pickled radish topped with eggplant and seaweed.
The Oyako Don (chicken, onion, egg, and green onions) wasn’t as good as the Chicken Katsu Don that we had recently at Sushi Oyama. It was a big bowl for $6.49 and it was relatively tasty but a little too much rice and not enough onions.
The Beef Yakisoba (also $6.49) was good and had plenty of beef.
They used to have a 1/2 price creative roll special if you spent $25 or more but the waitress said they stopped offering that. There is free parking next door but the stalls are a bit tight – especially if the guy who parks next to you parks his silver beemer (yes, I’m calling you out) at an angle instead of parking within the lines.
