Toku Nori: The Newest Instagrammable Handroll Restaurant In Singapore

Toku Nori is a brand new Japanese Izakaya restaurant specializing in craft handrolls with the freshest of ingredients, and the boldest of flavours. The name Toku Nori is explicitly chosen where ‘Toku’ means ‘special’, and Nori means ‘seaweed’ in the Japanese language. Thus at Toku Nori, they believe that eating handrolls is a special experience that should be shared.

The seaweed is cultivated off the coast of Japan in pristine waters and dried using traditional methods to preserve their natural flavours and crisp texture. Not only does Toku Nori bring in premium quality seaweed, but they also bring in premium grade Japonica pearl rice, or koshihikari, in Japanese. This rice is cooked to perfection to balance the moisture, stickiness and subtle sweetness serving to complement the flavours of their fresh fish.

Located along Telok Ayer Street, this 40-seater Japanese restaurant incorporates design elements of traditional Japanese handroll bars with modern day aesthetics. This quaint Japanese establishment is a great place for an authentic shared experience with friends and family.
