The first time I saw Toki Q was about a month ago, we were walking to Tea Tap and it so happened that Toki Q was just across the street! Little did I know that it was Pat Dy's! Yes, THE Pat Dy! My wonderful wedding photographer, Pat Dy!
Yesterday, I received an email from him inviting me to try the place - and last night, my Panget and I, together with Yaya D. and Kailee - we tried this place out!
I was very curious on the rotating barbeque! So I immediately asked the cook, he said that they will be running the machine in a few minutes to show me. He was telling me that there are three (3) different speeds - depending on the meat or item to be cooked. The machine had these clips that held the sticks of the yakitoris, these lead the meats to a griller - then it will lead the meats to be dipped into the sauce (if needed, not all meats are dipped in the sauces). It was fun to watch because the cook didn't need to keep on turning and tossing the sticks. I failed to take pic because I was too excited to witness the run! Haha!!
The newly cooked meats were delish! I think the selling point of the machine is that it grills the meats to perfection! The meats were tender and very flavorful, thanks to the yummy sauce! (If you can, order the extra sauce!)
My Panget liked the chicken skin so much that I had to order two more sticks - to which I never got a bite of! He said that it was really crispy! I liked the wings, chicken fillet with asparagus, and the Tontoro Pork - I wish I could eat more! We were also served with the Kara-age and Toki Bbq Corn - and they both were wonderful! The Kara-age was tender and the corn was sweet - then topped with the powder - wow, it made the taste more yummy! I loved the special powder so much that I put some on my rice, yes - it seems weird but I LIKED IT! :) Haha..
Here's a closer look at the meats - YUMM!!
Here's the Tontoro Pork (P30.00/Stick) and the Chicken Skin (P26.00)
This was what was left of my Combo 4 - 6 pieces of Chicken Wings (P145.00)
The menu is really simple but if you're the visual type and you want to see what you're going to order - check out the display. The place is quite small - but it serves its purpose since its a fast food! There are tables and chairs, the place can possibly occupy about 12 to 15 people, but it'll be quite crowded. The place is air-conditioned and very well lit. In my opinion, you won't come out smelling like grilled meat because they have very good ventilation - their exhausts are positioned strategically.
Another thing that made the difference is the staff, they're very friendly and warm - they will answer your every question and they seem to really know what they are doing! Try this place out if you're in the area! But make sure to go early because some food items run out!
