We know it’s not logical, but trust us and forget about ordering sushi here. We know that’s most of the menu, and you’ll be tempted by one of the big maki rolls—the crunchy, quail-egg topped “Tiger Eye” maybe, or the “unagi squares” (where the eel is pressed onto cubes of rice). But unlike every other Asian-fusion place, where it’s a good idea to stick with what they do the most of, you’ll want to seek out the small selection of Korean food here. Because while the sushi is just okay, the tender and juicy bulgogi is surprisingly good.
