"Tradition Creates A Delicious Seasoning"

Is the mantra at TonTon Sauce, the home to numerous international award-winning sauces and dressings. It was TonTon’s founder Yoshi Shioda’s simple desire to bring authentic Japanese cuisine to everyone in the USA. It was this same passion Yoshi & his wife Toshiko used to open their first authentic Japanese restaurant in Charlotte, NC in 1984 when “sushi” was still an exotic & foreign dish.

Restaurant Tokyo quickly captured a huge, dedicated, & loyal following because of the truly authentic Japanese dishes being prepared by Japanese chefs and the incredibly warm cultural experience provided by Yoshi & Toshiko.

TonTon’s first significant milestone was winning the annual NASFT’S (National Association of Specialty Food Trade) competition in 2000. Recognized within the specialty food industry as the most prestigious award, this award brought national media exposure.

Today, TonTon continues to expand with ever new & exciting products, but we are still committed to bringing exceptional Japanese flavors and quality to the American dinner table. “TonTon” means “knock-knock” in Japanese. We hope you will enjoy TonTon in your home as much as we enjoy it in ours.

Yoshi, Toshiko, & Mayumi
