Taiki: Drop In For Some Fantastic Japanese And Korean Cuisines!

    Indira Nagar, Bangalore


    Taiki, which literally translates to great or big, opened back its doors with proper sanitization measures in place and I went in to enjoy the delectable Korean and Japanese cuisine it has to offer.
    Ambiance: The place has a bit unique narrow lane kind of seating style decked with wooden tables and chairs. It's clean, chic and comfortable. The staff was wearing masks , temperature check and hand sanitization was done at the entrance.
    FOOD: I enjoyed a plethora of dishes ranging from sushi to dimsums to ramen. Read on below to understand what
    you can expect whenever you visit the outlet.
    Salads : In salads, we had the som tam and larb gai salads. Som tam had shredded raw papaya with a spicy dressing and peanuts.  Larb Gai is popular in Laos and Thailand and it had browned ground chicken with basil, onions and a dressing of chilli and lime. Both the salads were really appetizing and a perfect beginning to the meal.
    Sushi : Tried various kinds of sushi like asparagus and tofu roll, crabstick maki roll, spicy tuna maki and panko shiitake roll. Really enjoyed all of them. The flavours were banging.
    Dumplings: Next in line were one of my favourites dishes,dumplings. Tried the mushroom and edamame one, another with corn and chestnut, spicy prawn and lion head dumplings coated with spinach. I was totally bowled over by the lion head dumplings. Do not miss it.
    Steamed Baos :  Enjoyed some scrumptious steamed baos like fried aubergine, sweet and sour tofu , chicken katsu and sambal shrimp.
    Tebasaki : Japanese style chicken wings coated with honey and sesame. They were a bit too sweet to my liking.
    Tangy Tofu Cups : Tofu, water chestnuts and scallion served in an open wanton cup and dressed with a tangy sauce. A delicious bite sized appetizer.
    Sichuan Chilli Fish : The name tells you everything. A delight for the fish fans.
    Ramen Noodle Bowl : Ramen noodles in a hot broth with bok choy, spring onion, chicken, broccoli , shiitake mushrooms and egg. It was deliciously mild in flavours and made me feel all cozy and comforting, like on a wintry night.
    Bingsu : Its a popular snowflake Korean dessert made with milk shavings and a choice of topping along with ice cream.  We had lychee as the topping. It was absolutely yummy and finished in a jiffy. Couldn't be a better way to end the meal.
    Overall, I loved my experience here. The food is fantastic and one must visit and try out the unique flavours they have to offer. Would be visiting again soon. Sayonara.
