Toko Sushi and Boba specializes in Japanese cuisine. Sushi, sashimi, ramen, stir-fry noodles and other favorite dishes are on the menu. All of the sushi rolls are named after famous songs. They also offer sake, wine and milk tea with boba, which is dairy-free. And for dessert, they have Thai-style rolled ice cream, mixed on a cold iron right in front of the customer.

This menu is the culmination of Adikaputra’s 15 years in the restaurant business. Toko Sushi and Boba combines two of his previous business ventures. He worked at Shogun Japanese Steakhouse in Alton until it was sold, and he was a founding owner of Snow Factory, a Thai-style ice cream shop with multiple locations throughout St. Louis.
