If you want to impress your parents or your guests, take them to Sushi Uo. Going into the restaurant, you’ll find yourself admiring the well-trimmed garden and once inside, you’ll be greeted with a luxurious interior that’ll have you wondering how much it cost and servers adorning traditional kimonos. Head chef Shin Dongoh worked at the prestigious Ariake at Shilla Hotel for 12 years before picking up the reins at Sushi Uo. Shin’s steady hand that directs the kitchen assures its unchanging flavors, and if you’re lucky enough, you may see Shin pick up the knife himself. What differentiates Uo is its focus not on neta like ordinary sushi restaurants but on the shari. Shin uses a specially fermented vinegar to flavor the shari, inputing his own distinct identity on the sushi. Sushi Uo is the place to go if you want to treat a special someone and you have a thick wallet.
