Spring is the season to mark a lot of occasions, including the arrival of cherry blossoms. The annual viewing of cherry blossoms in not just a tradition in Toronto, but all over the world, including Japan. Of course, it’s looking a little different this year in The 6ix, thanks to the latest restrictions to avoid crowding. But that hasn’t stopped local Japanese restaurant, Tachi, from getting into the spirit. They’ve launched a special sakura-themed menu to celebrate the cherry blossom season.
The limited-time menu for the cherry blossom season is available to order now until mid-May. The sakura omakase set comes with nigiri sushi, a fatty tuna handroll and a sakura mochi. The Japanese rice cake dessert is made in partnership with Sasaki Fine Pastry. The bakery only uses ingredients that are either local or imported specifically from Japan.
Tachi is most well-known for serving the stand-up omakase sushi experience in just 30 minutes. Their dine-in menu features 11 pieces of sushi and one handroll, all served within that time frame. Ever since the pandemic, they’ve launched Tachi To Go, where you can order omakase for takeout. You can also add your choice of beverage, including the whiskey, Hibiki Japanese Harmony.
Orders can be placed on Tock (for pick-up) and Uber Eats (for delivery).
