Sneak Peek - Mother's Day Combo and Desserts at Tokoname Sushi Bar & Restaurant

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and I was fortunate to receive an invite to preview Tokoname Sushi Bar & Restaurant's Mother's Day Combo meal, that will only be available on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 8, 2022. If you haven't made plans for Mother's Day yet, or even if you already did, you may want to reconsider your plans, as Tokoname in Kailua has an enticing special combo meal that will be offered only on Mother's Day.

Here's what is included in the Mother's Day Combo:

Miso soup & Tsukemono

Sake Steamed Clam Appetizer

Green Salad with Tokoname's famous house miso dressing

Miso Butterfish, Shrimp & Vegetable Tempura,
and you choice of Maguro, Hamachi or Salmon Sashimi

Miso Butterfish

Shrimp & Vegetable Tempura

Shrimp Tempura

Salmon Sashimi

Bubbie's Mochi Ice Cream

At $59.95, this is a fantastic deal. Tokoname uses high quality, fresh sashimi - the salmon melted in my mouth. The tempura was crispy and the batter was not too oily or thick. The Sake Steamed Clams were amazing - the sake-based broth really brought out the brineness of the clams. I could tell the clams were thoroughly cleaned prior to cooking, and the clams were perfectly cooked (overcooked clams is a big no-no!).  This is not on their regular menu, so the clams are a reason in and of itself to visit Tokoname on Mother's Day.  The clams are included in the Mother's Day Combo meal, or it can be ordered ala carte as an appetizer for $15.95. And of course, no meal is complete without dessert, and the Mother's Day combo comes with Bubbie's Mochi Ice Cream! 

In addition to the Mother's Day combo, Tokoname will also be offering the following desserts that you should definitely save room for:

Azuki Dream

Tempura Ice Cream (with green tea or vanilla ice cream)

Strawberry Parfait

Despite being full from the Mother's Day combo, I had a hefty serving of the tempura ice cream and and Strawberry Parfait and I enjoyed them both! There's just something about the combination of ice cream and crunchy textures that makes it hard for me to put my spoon down. 

Although we were here to preview the Mother's Day Combo, we also got to sample some of Tokoname's other offerings, such as the Japanese Hand-Mixed Sodas (non-alcoholic), and the Miso-Glazed Tofu (which is not on the regular menu).

Tokoname will be open on Mother's Day from 12 noon to 9 pm. Reservations are highly recommended. The restaurant has both inside and outside seating.
