Torafuku Launches Fall Omakase, An Unexpectedly Perfect Thanksgiving Offering
For those looking to switch things up this Thanksgiving, count on Torafuku to provide a menu with fun riffs on classics and innovative flavour combinations the Main street establishment is celebrated for.
Pan-Asian eatery Torafuku launches a fall omakase just in time for Thanksgiving. For those looking for an alternative to turkey, this fall feast featuring options including Roast Duck, Steak Dianne or Steelhead Trout Papillote and an array of sides that nod to the traditional won’t disappoint. The new offering is available starting October 6 for dine-in.
Designed to share, the seven-course Fall Omakase showcases various seasonal starters, mains and desserts for guests to choose from. Torafuku’s Roast Duck with chili-lime vinaigrette makes an excellent substitute for turkey; in place of stuffing, it’s paired with crispy Duck Fried Rice, which comes loaded with Brome Lake Duck Leg, sweet pineapple and Thai red chili. Those opting for Steak Dianne, an incredibly tender picanha cut paired with shitake mushrooms sautéed in tarragon brandy will be treated to an accompanying side of slightly sweet and fluffy Pain au Lait, a take on the traditional dinner roll but in the style of Japanese milk bread.
Other menu highlights include a fabulous fall salad, Apple and Beets, featuring roasted beets, honey crisp apple, celery, house made ricotta, and walnuts. For dessert, diners may opt for a Basque Cheesecake with blueberry compote or the Magic Stick 2.0, a sweet sensation featuring layers of white chocolate ganache with earl grey and feuilletine.
This latest omakase is available exclusively for dine-in at Torafuku. Guests will have the option to savour the new offerings in the restaurant as a seven-course omakase for $60.00 per person (two person minimum) or order dishes a la carte.
