Probably one of the most magical looking places on Earth during the months of late March to mid-April is Tokyo, when the whole place is blooming in pink because of the Cherry Blossoms during Sakura Season. Sakura means Cherry Blossom. I’ve only seen it in photos on the internet and I’m sure those photos don’t do them justice when you see them in real life. It just looks so spectacular! Sakura festival is their way of welcoming the spring. And every season they make the most out of the beautiful surroundings by having a scrumptious picnic under the Cherry Blossoms with their family and friends, with meals usually consisting of grilled or fried meat, fish and veggies, and colorful desserts.
We may not be there in Japan physically to experience this beautiful season right now, but that doesn’t mean we cannot celebrate. So, Tokyo Tokyo decided to bring the Sakura Festival to us!
Presenting Tokyo Tokyo’s Sakura Sumo Meal!
Tokyo Tokyo’s Sakura Sumo Meal is packed with lots of delicious items that can satisfy the tummies of two people.. Although I admit, I wanted to try to finish this platter myself, It really is quite filling, and really is best when shared!
The Sakura Sumo Meal consists of three pieces of Fried Chicken Karaage. This is remarkably crispy, flavorful cutlets of deep fried chicken, that maintains a certain level of moistness on the inside.
It also has Beef Misono with Mixed Vegetables. You can never go wrong with these tender, flavorful strips of stir fried beef.
The Sakura Meal also has two pieces of crunchy Tokyo Tokyo’s famous Prawn Tempura plus a Vegetable Tempura. If you haven’t tried their tempura yet, you should! It has a good size, excellent shrimp to breading ratio, and the coating is always crunchy!
Of course it also comes with the delicious Yakisoba to satisfy that noodle craving that I always seem to get when dining at Tokyo Tokyo!.
For dessert, the Sakura Sumo Meal comes with two pieces of Sakura Mochi Balls. A ball of glutinous rice so chewy it’s addicting! And on its center, it’s filled with creamy peanut butter!
On top of all these, the Sakura Sumo Meal comes with two glasses of Sakura Lychee Fizz. I really liked this and I’m sure my wife Rina will love this too. A tall glass of Sprite is infused with a Sakura Syrup and mixed with soft nata strips, creating a remarkably unique and refreshing drink!
A really satisfying side dish!
Tokyo Tokyo has done it again creating another excellent Sumo Meal that everyone will love digging into!
The Sakura Sumo Meal is good for two and is only a very reasonable P379!
