TOH-KA-LIN

A SUNDAY BRUNCH, CHINESE STYLE

It’s not easy finding a good, authentic Chinese restaurant in Tokyo. After awhile, you just decide to let go of the authentic part and just settle for what’s good. Toh-ka-lin, a cozy Chinese restaurant on the second floor of the Okura Hotel I find to be one of those places. Simple, good Chinese food. It’s not the kind of chinese food you’d get in Hong kong, but it’s not too bad either.

They have an a la carte menu and about 4 sets of brunch menus to choose from starting at about 6000 yen per person. We chose one of the course menus that cost 8400 yen and here is what we had :

First course : Assorted chilled appetizers
Second course : Shark Fin and Crabmeat Soup
Third course : Crispy chicken, Cantonese Style
Fourth Course : sautéed Scallop with green asparagus
Fifth course : sautéed beef with Oyster sauce
Sixth course : Hot pot of braised prawn in barbecue sauce
Seventh course : Mixed fried rice
Dessert : Almond jelly with coconut rice dumpling

From all the dishes we were served today, the beef and the fried rice were the best. We also tried some of their  yam-cha (dim-sum) which were also very good.

The restaurants also has some private rooms and cute semi-private tables hidden behind sheer curtains. This is definitely a good place to feast on some Chinese food in Tokyo.
