DOMA Toronto Tasting Menu

Doma a French inspired Korean restaurant is the first-time endeavor of Chef Paul Kim from Seoul, Korea. Their menu changes slightly each month by incorporating new items and rolling forward a few popular items from the previous menu.

For $65 per person, you can experience their 9-course tasting menu which is effectively also their entire monthly offerings. Great deal!

I went in the month of May and some of their popular entree type items are still currently available on their menu this month.

(Left) Rhubarb and Ginger – rhubarb and soju sorbet, ginger snap crumble, rice pudding.  (Right) Rice Cake Rolled Ice Cream – beet, condensed milk, 9 grain, black tea, rice crispy, soy powder.

I love French cuisine and I also love the Korean palate so the combination was perfect for me. Other than the Amuse Bouche to start, the servings for 2 people were put together in one plate – I’m guessing to allow you to continue to dine in their “sharing” style. My favourite dish was Uhsun Mandoo which was similar to ravioli.

Give it a try if you love either styles! I’ve been recommending it to my friends because I love the idea of a changing monthly menu, and for an entire tasting menu the price point is quite affordable.
