Tokyo Thyme’s Red and White Tuna Stack. YUM! 6/6
Assemble the Tuna stack by mixing the tuna stack (quail egg optional/extra). Then create a cone of nori, rice and tuna mixture. This is so fresh tasting and the crispy nori is delicious!
Combo with nigiri sushi (4/6), California roll (5/6)and beef udon (3.5/6)
Bloody Winter: 5/6
Tuna, masago on top; spicy tuna, yama imo, and shiso inside. I loved this roll. The yama imo (mountain yam) gives a crunchy texture. It is somewhat like jicama. This specialty roll is not on the regular menu.
Tokyo Thyme is tiny. It's located right across the street from Point Grey Secondary School. The storefront is easy to miss. There's meter parking out front and we didn't have a problem at this hour finding a spot. There are two tables of 4 and maybe 4 or 5 tables of 2. We went early at 5pm on a Friday and there was only one other couple was there. Service was friendly and great. I'd like to try some of the other dishes next time. The appetizers and specialty rolls (not found on the regular menu) are particularly intriguing.
