Seasonal Izakaya Menu Tasting at Ryoji Ramen & Izakaya

Posted on Updated on


** Due to sourcing issues, the braised beef cheek will be replaced with the grilled miso seabass for the rest of the month **

By popular request we’re continuing our Seasonal Izakaya tasting at Ryoji Ramen & Izakaya with Toronto Common for one more month, every Tuesday in April!

Ryoji loves changing things up including regularly bringing in guest chefs from their 11 sister restaurants in Okinawa and regularly adding new dishes to their menu.

For April we’re eating & drinking izakaya style, small plates and beer, with 6 izakaya items off their seasonal “tapas” menu and a pint of Sapporo for $20 tax & tip included. Plus an option for a mini ramen to make it a meal for $5!

  • Saba Goma-ae Okinawa Tofu
    house made Okinawa tofu with mackerel sashimi, sesame seeds, sweet wasabi sauce, and scallions.
  • Fresh Tomato Tempura
    with garlic salt and mustard mayo
  • Calamari Salad
    crispy calamari with mixed greens and their original miso dressing
  • Kobe Beef Sushi
    Seared Kobe Beef on sushi rice with gluten-free soy and fresh wasabi
  • Sous-vide chicken carpaccio
    with “ko-re-gusu” vodka infused with chilli peppers, red onion, and pickled jalapenos.
  • Braised Beef Cheek
    simmered in miso cream

Izakayas are found throughout Japan, and casual bars that serve flavourful snacks to accompany drink, similar to a tapas bar.

Ryoji Ramen & Izakaya
, established in January 2013 in Toronto, but with multiple locations in Okinawa Japan, is the only Okinawan-style Izakaya in Toronto.

With Okinawa’s rich history and slightly different culture from mainland Japan, Ryoji offers traditional and inventive cuisines and ramens reflective of the unique culture of Okinawa.

Simple yet delicate flavours, fresh ingredients, creative cuisine, served in a bistro style.

Staying true to the Ryoji values of gratitude, passion, and awareness, Ryoji looks to evolve their menu with appreciation to their surroundings and to continue to evolve the art of Japanese cuisine.
