TokyoLima: The Hotspot in Town for a Midnight Bite

August 17, 2017 Dining No Comments Email Email

When late-night hunger strikes, there’s no reason not to satiate the appetite in style. Tucked away on Lyndhurst Terrace, TokyoLima’s buzzing kitchen is one of the few the heart of central to stay open late every night of the week. Theizakaya inspired, Nikkei restaurant serves their full a-la-carte menu right until midnight. Paired with an impressive drinks menu of creative cocktails and sake’s many varieties, the no service charge restaurant is the late-night place to be any night of the week.

Award-winning Chef Arturo Melendez’s menu of raw, marinated and seared plates provide the perfect excuse to stay up late. Go all night with TokyoLima’s Nikkei-style sushi rolls, made with fresh seafood and a twist of Peruvian spice. New sushi creations not to miss include the colourful Maguro Nuevo (HKD140), with fresh tuna, avocado, rocoto mayo and tobiko, Spicy Hamachi (HKD120) with yellowtail and a brush of spicy mint sauce for a serious flavour kick and the beautifully presented crispy Soft-shell Crab “De Concha Blanda” (HKD130) with avocado and chilli mayo. Vegetarians and meat-eaters alike will love the Futomaki (HKD100), with okra tempura, cucumber, shitake mushrooms and an intense wasabi miso mayo.

Bursting with colour and flavour, TokyoLima’s selection of fresh, raw dishes are as indulgent as a midnight snack should be. Don’t miss the Yellowtail Tiradito (HKD160), prepared with citrus, passion fruit tiger’s milk, tobiko, topped with crispy sweet potato, and the Beef Tataki (HKD190) with pickled onions, cucumber and capers, on a bed of eye-catching Aji Amarillo and ponzu sauce.

Known for his unique twist on classic Peruvian dishes, Chef Arturo’s new Beef Cheek Adobo (HKD260) is an exciting addition to the menu. Braised for 12 hours, the tender and succulent beef cheek has a rich marinade of beer, mint, garlic and black pepper. Pair it with a glass of TokyoLima’s hand-picked South American wine selection red wine from for an indulgent and satisfying late-night meal.

A late-night izakaya-inspired menu wouldn’t be complete without skewers, and TokyoLima’s Peruvian street food-inspired anticuchos sticks, are perfect for hungry diners. Order the Chicken Yakitori (HKD120), Portobello & Nasu (HKD80) and Picanha Rump Steak(HKD140) and wash them down with a Japanese craft beer for an izakaya experience.

Finish the feast with Chef Arturo’s chocolatey Oye Papi (HKD100), a combination of chocolate mousse, brownie and sauce with coconut sorbet and caramelised almond.

Just like Japan’s famous izakayas, where locals eat and drink well into the early hours, Chef Arturo’s menu is made to be paired with TokyoLima’s impressive drinks programme. Signature cocktails such as the elegant Sake Martini (HKD95) or the Smoking Gun (HKD120) with smoky Lapsong tea-infused Bulldog Gin are great options to complement late-night eats. TokyoLima’s sake selection is one of the best in town, with favourites including the crisp, floral Tanju Chokaisan, and the fragrant, expressive Fukucho, made by one of Japan’s few female brewery owners.
