In the summer of 2017 we went to visit Takumi Dusseldorf in Rotterdam and I wrote a review about their dishes then, this year I went back and asked the staff to recommend me a dish. The waiter showed me the ‘HOT NOW’ dishes and I ordered one of them. Read my revisited Takumi review now!
Disclaimer: These are based on my personal opinion and I in no way want to hurt or misjudge the restaurants. Everyone has their own taste and experience. Don’t base your judgement on what I found and definitely check out the restaurant unless I explicitly post about it here. 🙂
When I came in I asked the waiter what he could recommend me to take as I wanted to write a review for them. He told me to pick the Black Garlic Tonkotsu Ramen and I asked for some Karaage and home made ice tea.
The food came really quick and it looked and tasted absolutely amazing. Though I couldn’t finish all of the soup because it was a little bit too strong for my taste I really enjoyed it while I ate.
Overal the dish looked very appealing, dark on the right, light on the left. The egg was boiled to perfection and the meat was so soft I could pull pieces off with my chopsticks.
I really love Tonkotsu, a boiled bone soup that’s rich and thick in flavour. It combined well with the strong black garlic taste and the chives on top. Making it a hearthy broth.
Karaake is basically fried chicken, without the bone. It’s usually hard on the outside and soft on the inside… just like these. The Mayonaise mix? was just perfect as well. If I could I’d eat this every week.
I’m very fussy when it comes to iced tea. I don’t like the well known brand lipton much because there’s always a certain after taste to their drinks but this home made tea with a few sprigs of mint and a piece of lemon floating in my ice. This tea wasn’t overly sweet, but not watery either. I’m glad I picked it with my food and would love to know their recipe….
I would and will go here again, this overal was my fourth or fifth time going to Takumi and I absolutely love their food, their staff and their interiour. They play Japanese pop music and the food is fairly priced. Though next time I don’t want to be lead by my belly and order some of their curry or tsukemen noodles.
I also hope this will happen quite soon as I just want to eat good food. So thank you Takumi for giving us one of the best japanese food places to go in Rotterdam and I hope to see you again soon!
