The word “Toki” refers to a lot of things in the Japanese culture. Toki may mean “this moment”, which is actually how TOKI, a fine dining restaurant at the Fort, interprets it. This is the moment where Toki, with its Executive Chef, Shinsuke Yonikawa, brings in all the exciting flavors from Japan with the twist of having to use all Filipino ingredients to suit the palate of the Pinoys.

We got to experience the unique taste this month. The signage and restaurant’s exterior was very inviting since it exhibited a Japanese theme. Upon entering, you will pass a wooden hallway which was quite impressive. When you turn to your right, up on the walls are pictures of celebrities and politicians who have eaten in the restaurant. Although it breaks the classy feel of the place, my family actually went to that corner and checked out the pictures of celebrities like Derek Ramsey, Pops Fernandez and politicians like Manny Villar and Dick Gordon.

We were then led to our table. One of the waiters immediately handed us warm towels to wipe our hands with. We then ordered scrumptous dishes. I noticed that the menu was very thick. Each page presented a category, such as Seafood, Chicken, etc. Each category had around 10 – 15 dishes. I’m not sure if this is a good business move for them to have so many choices since this may affect their overhead costs, but for customers, i’m sure we enjoy the variety!

So for the dishes that we ordered, we started off with the Spicy Tuna (Php 350) This is Tuna Sashimi mixed with spicy mayonnaise. There were also some tempura breadings mixed with this dish. I always love spicy food, so I have also tried the spicy tuna of Teriyaki Boy. The difference would be that the mayonnaise of Teriyaki Boy is creamier than that of Toki and there are more Tempura crumbs in the spicy tuna of Terikayi Boy’s.

I ordered the Toki Mentaiko Gratin at Php 390 (gratin topped preserved Cod roe) for my main dish. It was made out of fish, green veggies, mushrooms, a creamy sauce and lots of cheese. The taste was surprisingly subtle. When you look at the dish, you wouldn’t expect the dish to have such a subtle taste because there were many things going on visually. The dish was good though.

We also ordered Chicken Teppanyaki (Php 260) and Chicken Teriyaki (Php 240) , which were quite staples in any Japanese Menu. The Chicken Teriyaki tasted pretty much like what we know Chicken Teriyaki to taste like. What I loved is the Chicken or Tori Teppanyaki. It came in a dish that was well presented and with it came another dish with three sauces. The sauce were soy sauce, tartar sauce and barbeque sauce. The sauces with the Chicken Teriyaki were amazing! I would definitely recommend that you try this dish.

Also, try their Chicken rice (Php 160), Seafood Teppanyaki (Php 430), Ebi Tempura (Phpn 390) and other appetizing dishes.

The prices of the dishes were pretty expensive and the servings were not that much. The experience though was great. If you’re looking for a fine dining Japanese restaurant, then Toki is THE place.
