Must Get: pork belly

There’s an added cool factor to all hidden bars and restaurants, but this one is definitely at the top of my list. It’s not only hidden in the basement level of an office building, but the food is practically to die for. Their pork belly melts in your mouth– it’s no surprise it’s the most popular item on their menu. Their sushi is some of the best I’ve had since my time spent in Japan or that grungy place in Torrance, California (which has beaten every sashimi restaurant in my book). Their duck breast, steak sauteed with onions, and shrimp and almond balls round out my list of favorites as well. One dish that I wish I hadn’t ordered would be their kimchi rice bowl; I should have known better!

Their sake menu is even more extensive than their food menu, so make sure you come hungry and thirsty… And willing to spend some hard earned dollars. This place is not cheap, but it’s worth the treat.
