Rice, nothing but rice, please!
You come to Torafuku for one thing only, the rice! If you don't like rice or couldn?t tell the subtle flavor among various rice, this is not a place for you, or you would find everything over-priced. Torafuku's rice is pearl like, slightly round in shape and translucent, moist but not sticky. The taste is subtle yet flavorful, with a touch of sweetness on every mouthful. Order the hot dish, especially the home made tofu and salmon toban. Sometimes they would have a special of fish (usually Japanese Snapper) braised in sweet soy sauce, that alone could make 3 bowls ($3 each) of rice disappear. In order to preserve the rice's fullest flavor, they probably didn't vinegar too much of the sushi rice. So I think their sushi was missing just a bit. Rice from Torafuku, you?ve got to love it!
