After seeing my photos from the Tabelog event, Emily got really excited about the deviled eggs at Tuome. We quickly made plans for dinner, and between drinks at Eastwood and Pouring Ribbons, John and I stopped Tuome for an early dinner with friends. We weren’t able to get a reservation, but showed up right when they opened at 6pm to see if we could get one of the walk in tables. Tuome is pretty small, and I feel like we were pushing our luck with a table of five.
They seated us at a table that was booked for a 7:30pm reservation. Woohoo! We figured it should no problem for us to leave before that reservation since we were just planning on having small bites, not a big meal. We each ordered a couple small plates or sides. The rice dumplings and mac and cheese looked like they would be quite filling. I got the Fire in the Sky cocktail ($12), which I loved on my last visit. I was thrilled to enjoy the Beets ($12) all by myself.
I was torn between the Deviled Egg ($8) and the Mushroom ($14) for my second dish, but I ultimately stuck to the fabulous fried panko deviled eggs. Seriously, how can you turn that down?! I’m coming back to try that mushroom dish, but that comes with a sixty minute egg. If I were to order both dishes next time, that’ll be a lot of egg in one meal. Intense.
To be honest, our waitress seemed slightly annoyed the entire time. Maybe she was having a bad day, or maybe she didn’t like that we only ordered small plates, or maybe she was worried that we wouldn’t leave on time… whatever it was, at least it didn’t affect our meal too much.
The food was great, and the ambiance at Tuome is wonderful! Very inviting and cozy, perfect for date night or an intimate gathering with friends. There aren’t many things on the menu for vegetarians, but hey, I’m happy to keep coming back for Tuome’s delectable small plates.
