Daitokyo is one of authentic Japanese cuisines in Little Tokyo, Melawai, Blok M. The restaurant has many private rooms, but it was all reserved when we arrived.
There is also a tatami private room.
We sat at the bar seating which face directly into the kitchen.
The menu book is huge.
Apparently, this restaurant is part of a big group, Daisei Group, who owns many other brands, including Kira Kira Ginza (right next to Daiktokyo), Yellowfin, Jurin, Ramen 38, and a Japanese bakery La Mouette.
We ordered a glass of sake.
Nankotsu Karaage – chicken cartilage
Gekikara Age Tofu – I love the crunchy garlic and chilli toppings
Yaki Tofu Chanjya – the topping was a bit strange, tasted kind of like a mixture of jelly fish with something else. I did research afterwards. It turns out that “Chanjya” is Korean style dish, made of stomach of codfish.
Tsukune – one of Riri’s favourite
Yaki Tori Don – The rice set consists of all chicken parts, including skin and liver. I prefer chicken meat only. The menu is very creative, uncommonly seen in other Japanese restaurants. Sadly, they do not have Tamagoyaki. I was a little bit annoyed when there was suddenly a cat inside the restaurant.
Wooden plates decoration in front of the restaurant, which I also implemented on Java Java.
