I miss Tomo's!

Does anywhere even come close?

  1. I drive by there all the time and never thought to stop....I regret it now looking at reviews.

    1. Me too! It was the best place ever. I still wear my Tomo's t-shirt with their house rules on the back. We have not found anything to replace it, sadly. For cooked Japanese food, have been going to Mitsuwa in Edgewater. Have also heard good things about Asahi in Ft. Lee and expect to try it over the summer.

      1. Where are you eating at Mitsuwa I would love some hints

          Their ramen is amazing. Everyone I talk to there says it's the best in the NYC area. I also like their beef curry udon and katsu presentations. The potato salad that comes with the katsu is really delicious - can't quite put my finger on the other flavors in it yet.

        2. I miss Tomo's as well. It was tiny oasis of authentic Japanese cuisine in a sea of crunchy rolls. He made the most fantastic braised pork belly and ankimo.

          1. Tomo's is back!!!! My wife just saw it and called to confirm that it is the same folks!!! So excited!!!

              Maybe it's just the mobile site, but I don't see an address anywhere...the map link shows it's on Rt 10 in/near Whippany?

                I love the restaurant rules!

                I just called the website number and the address is:

                143 Route 10 East Hanover.

                  With all due respect to your wife, I couldn't believe it, so I called them too. Please convey my apologies to her. It is indeed the same Tomo's from Little Falls. I'm so excited they're back!

                    We went on Friday and it is as if they never closed! Same menu. Room is a lot nicer and a little larger. Tomo had gone back to Japan for several years to volunteer in tsunami relief, from what we were told. We had several of our favorite dishes for the first time in years. It was awesome!
