Meine Culinarische Reise durch Münster : Tokio Acacia

Just one word to describe Tokio Acacia.. WOW! I am an avid sushi eater and I must say that I was impressed with the food, service and atmosphere. The restaurant preserves the traditional culture of Japanese cuisine. There are several indoor slippers placed in a a shoe rack at the doorway. This is a 'hint' to customers that they should remove their shoes and wear the slippers before stepping onto the dining area. Different kinds of sake bottles, origami cranes, etc. arranged neatly on a wooden rack set. The restaurant is equipped with traditional lowered tables as well as modern style wooden tables and chairs.For me, the best seats are around the 'worktop' in the center of the restaurant; you can observe the sushi chef slicing raw fish, crafting rolls and grilling the food...meticulous and artistic!

Japanese etiqutte @ wearing slippers :
shoes *should* be arranged neatly with toes facing the door..

I am not so sure about the actual ingredients...
I named them as lip-smacking fried seafood-flavored tofu cubes ;)

(A nice, pleasant Oolong tea)
  • [food] The menu is not extensive, but the restaurant offers fine selections of dishes. I ordered a small 'sushiteller' - a sushi combo which includes 3 Nigiri and 4 Maki. They were very fresh, delicious, and satisfying :) I love the Ei (sweet egg) , Garnele (prawn) and Inari (stuffed tofu) sushi...The soy sauce was not overly salty, it was just right...In addition (well, I was so pleased with the food), I ordered a spicy Uramaki (with Tuna, Avacado, Leek and Chilli sauce fillings) and a California roll (with prawn and avacado). The roll was really tasty, however I wasn't so excited with the spicy tuna.
  • [service] The service was polite; the waitress took little time to serve the drinks. It might take a while to receive the sushi though...
  • [price] Expensive (~28 EUR ) but WORTH it! Table reservations are highly recommended as they have limited seating.
  • [stars] 4 3/4 stars
@FO - Thank you for joining! Visions of sushi still dancing in my head..hehe...
