The thing about Japanese restaurants is that once I take a look at the menu, I want to taste a little of everything. Conveniently, Tokyo Sushi in the Old Market caters to exactly that desire, thanks to their option of an all-you-can-eat dining experience.
Tokyo Sushi owner and chef Randy Gao told me how variety's appeal is what drove his restaurant concept. He said rigid menus caused diners to order safely, sticking to an item they'd eaten before and enjoyed, while adventurous eating was often unrealistic appetite-wise and over budget. Gao anticipated that by offering smaller portions from a made-to-order, all-you-can-eat menu. Customers could now feel free to sample and share a host of Japanese dishes, without a hefty price tag.
