Crouch End has proven to be one of North London’s more desirable neighbourhoods, and it’s made all the more enticing by Tootoomoo - a vibrant pan-Asian restaurant that sits in the middle of Crouch End, bringing together classic dishes from Malaysia, China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam and more, all under one menu.
Tootoomoo Crouch End is the group’s flagship restaurant, and it has other successful sites in Islington and Whetstone too. The beauty of the pan-Asian menu is that it really has something for everyone - whether your vibe is Korean fried chicken, Japanese donburi rice bowls or steaming baskets full of dim sum, you’ll find something on the menu that takes your fancy.
That’s just a snapshot of the menu, but there’s plenty more to choose from. There are seaweed salads and soups, stir fried wok dishes, bao buns with various fillings and a host of smaller snacks including spring rolls, gyozas and sticky miso-glazed aubergine. If you love dim sum, Tootoomoo’s dumpling menu features classic dim sum such as prawn har gao, pork and prawn dumplings as well as Korean mandu dumplings.
That’s before you get into curries - from fiery Thai curries to King prawn katsu, and noodle dishes like pad Thai, chow mein and chicken curry noodles.
On the drinks front, Tootoomoo covers all the bases yet again with a wide range of options from fruit and milk boba teas, to a selection of beers, spirits and cocktails, including classics like a Cosmopolitan, and house specials like the passion fruit-spiked Tootoomojito.
Tootoomoo also does a popular bottomless brunch on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, where you can get stuck into gyozas, crispy duck rolls, bae buns and noodle dishes, all washed down with your choice of prosecco, wine, Asahi draught or margaritas.
