Each culinary offerings at Yoka Yoka retain its own uniqueness in terms of taste and presentation. For example, the Unagi Shirayaki menu presents unagi that is grilled directly before serving, which gives it a different flavour than unagi in general. Then there is the Inaniwa Udon, which is one of Japan’s best regional dishes due to its centuries-old recipe and handmade process. Other recommended dishes at the restaurant include the Roast Beef and Sukiyaki, where the presentation of the Sukiyaki includes cotton candy that guests can dip into their Sukiyaki broth to add sweetness to it.

For the beverage selection, Yoka Yoka offers both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. A recommended mocktail option is the fresh Peach Marry, while the popular cocktail selection is Yoka’s Secret, which combines the sour and refreshing flavours of lemon and lychee, presenting the perfect beverage to enjoy while relaxing with friends. The dining experience wouldn’t be complete without desserts, where the mainstay dessert at Yoka Yoka is Potato Mont Blanc, which is a sweet potato dessert wrapped in cream in the form of noodles.
