Fantastic. Just delicious.
I wanted to take more pics but let's be honest, that's not really cool, is it?
If you had ever been to Fifi's, you know it was nicely decorated inside. Koreana has taken the nice decor and enhanced it by adding some really interesting saxophone lamps, branches suspended from the ceiling and a sushi bar with impressive wooden sculptures. Our waitress (who was funny, attentive, and knowledgeable) noted that the owner himself was responsible for the decor. Pretty sweet, right?
Water (boring!) so I also ordered this Japanese soda that came in a glass bottle. In order to open it, you tear off the top hard plastic piece, push it down and a glass marble plops down into the neck but stays at the top because of the design of the bottle. Drink with a straw. Tasted like Sprite. I was so fascinated by this soda that I wrote down the name, Ramune.
We ordered a sushi with all cooked ingredients (that's the sacrifice you have to make while pregnant). However, it was hardly a sacrifice. Egg, beef and other veggies and spices with an amazing ginger soy dipping sauce. Yes.
I really, really, really had a hard time deciding on what to order. Everything on the dinner menu looked so appetizing and being an adventurous eater, that makes it hard to choose. Plus, I was
Here is what we chose:
|Beef (I cannot remember what this was called) - also spicy with some veggie and white rice|
|DakBokeum - Very Spicy Chicken/both white and dark with veggies. Served with white rice|
|Sides - Fish Cakes (blech), Kimchee (not my favorite), and Cold Sesame Broccoli (yum)|
|More Sides! Cold Potato Salad (fantastic), Zucchini Cakes (best side of all sides), and Squid (a little chewy)|
To end the meal, our server brought out these little cheesecake squares (Oreo, plain and raspberry). She explained they were complimentary since we were first time customers. Awwww! Like everything else, they were just perfect.
We will be going back (hopefully sooner rather than later) and I would recommend you go too! Great job Koreana!
