Tori Tori Restaurant Review

: In Mexico City, the menus of most Japanese restaurants are full of items that clearly pander to the home team. For instance, sushi rolls are usually stuffed with cream cheese, jalapeƱo peppers or mayonnaise, and in certain gruesome instances, all three. That is why the few authentic Japanese restaurants in town---of which Tori Tori is the most sterling example---are so welcome. The decoration, of wood and bamboo, is typical-minimal, and the menu never strays from the traditional. However, its preparations are exemplary. Sushi and sashimi are consummate in both freshness and taste. Apart from the raw bar, standout appetizers include seaweed salad, seafood croquettes, cucumber-and-octopus salad, and among the main dishes, the teriyakis and yakitoris are topnotch.
