Tutu Madness at Tomo

IMG_4917

Valentines Day has always been a cause for debate between the heartbroken & the hopeless romantics. I for one, am all up for a day where the universe celebrates my favourite colour (and another excuse to go shopping for dinner outfits..shh).

What’s the harm in having one whole day to celebrate your love for umm.. love?!! Be it a romantic evening with a hot date, or a night in with your two besties; The Notebook & a tub of Pralines ‘n Cream.. We ALL deserve a little something on the day of Universal Cheesy-ness and Lovebugs right?!

After days of researching for the perfect romantic dinner spot in Dubai (yes I researched, excel sheets ‘n all!) I found Tomo by Takahashi on Tripadvisor.com, a saviour that website is. Tomo is a Japanese restaurant located on the tip of the pyramid at The Raffles Hotel, Dubai. Dinner on top of a pyramid!!! Need I say more?!!

We decided to go for their Japanese seating area (ahhh the comfort of eating barefoot) which was outside over-looking the beautiful city and Burj Khalifa. We spent a magical night under the stars (part of which was spent trying to stuff my tutu into my seat.. irrelevant), gobbled down delicious food and enjoyed the beautiful cool breeze.. A firework show in a nearby location was just the cherry on top of the cake!!

PS. After more research, I discovered that Tomo means ‘Lifelong Friend’ in Japanese.. Cuz I’m sure you all wanted to know that! ahem. Want to experience the magic of Japanese cuisine?? Check them out Here.

Our Order:

Starters: Seafood Tempura & Deep Fried Oysters

Makis: Crispy California, Crispy Shrimp Tempura & Crispy Crab Roll

Main: Grilled Salmon in Teriyaki Sauce (Angels were singing in my tummy!)

Dessert: Tomo Parfait (was absolutely awesome except for the red fruit, do let me know what it is if you ever find out)

Enjoy the pics xx
