Located alongside Toronto City Hall, the uncomplicated atmosphere of Japango encourages indulgence in the Japanese menu, which features chef specials and lunch combos, along with sushi a la carte prepared in full view at the bar. There are no more than a dozen tables in the restaurant space, so take-out orders are especially popular with local office workers and condo dwellers.
Solo, Combo and Group Eats
Combo choices for lunch at Japango include 11 or 14 pieces of sushi and maki, and 12 or 18 sashimi pieces. A vegetarian diner includes a dozen pieces of maki, an avocado handroll, miso soup and rice. Chicken, salmon and beef are also prepared as catering-style platters and those looking to feed a group can order a small, medium or large selection of fresh sushi, maki and sashimi. Salads and rice top the appetizer list, along with soft shell crab, skewered chicken and veggies, tofu or chilled bean curd, deep-fried oysters, calamari and edamame.
The chef’s specialty list at Japango covers a wide range of tastes and textures: Udon mixed with beef, chicken or seafood, chicken or pork katsu, sliced beef loin marinated with rice, and salmon teriyaki. The deluxe dinner includes a choice of teriyaki entrée, tempura, pieces of assorted sushi and a California roll set. Deep-fried shrimp and vegetables with tempura sauce, broiled eel on rice and beef or chicken cutlets are also staples, with green tea or red bean ice cream for dessert.
