Tokio Asian Fusion

What's in a name? A lot for the newly renamed Tokio Asian Fusion, formerly the Tokio Pub, in Schaumburg. In addition to the name change to more accurately reflect the restaurant's vision, new menu items such as crispy tofu bites, red curry chicken and the kimchi cheeseburger (Angus beef topped with kimchi, pickled daikon, tempura onion rings, American cheese, fried egg, garlic aioli and cucumber salad) have been added to the menu. Don't worry -- staples like tacos, sushi rolls, the ramen burger and the Japanese Hot Rock Appetizer still grace the menu, too. But that's not all. The updated all-season patio now features twinkling lights and more greenery. And there's a new all-day bar menu featuring Kung Fu mussels, ramen sliders, Korean barbecue wings and more.
