Looks like white people owned? Never sure how I feel about that. Best Pho I have had in the city is from Stock and that's white guy owned.

Sorry. That last sentence was to say that it isn't a knock on the quality of food.

Been to Stock a couple times and just remember being annoyed they didn't have any beef pho choices. I'm a Pho 75 fan boy.

Dunno about the city, but in the Burbs 90% of the Japanese restaurants are owned by Chinese or Koreans.

Can make a huge difference, sometimes, if there is a Japanese chef on site. Had amazing Ramen in a strip mall in Savannah GA - authentic chef on site.

I get lots of ethnic confusion, mostly because every Chinese restaurant and pizza joint - top end ones too - have an all-Latin American staff including the cooks. It's a good sign that any kind of person can execute any cuisine. Once we get over our fears of cultural appropriation.

Was surprised how close those two shops are. Saw them both in a recent Philly.com article that included a new place here in NJ.

Went to Smoke in Audubon this evening for BBQ. It was solid. Looking forward to Mikes next weekend.

served a sweet roll to start. then rolled out garlic fried rice on banana leaves. Covered that with vegetables(brussels, bok choy, okra, acorn squash, grean beans) then they tossed on quartered chickens, whole monk fish, pork belly, and lumpia. added a few dipping sauces on the side. 40$ a person and so worth it.
hell ya. im going tomorrow with my gf. going to definitely cost a little more than 40 each but looking forward to it.


We went last night. Came to $95/couple before tip. Everything was wonderful - four of us shared 2 appetizers and 1 garlic rice, then each got an entree; I had the barramundi. The best thing of all might have been the dessert - a bibingka cake with rice flour and coconut, topped with chopped salted duck egg.

Went to Royal Sushi for the first time on Wednesday. The sushi was absolutely spectacular. We had the 18 piece nigiri omokase and it was a fantastic assortment of incredible flavors, absolutely as fresh as could be. Watching the skill with which it is prepared at the counter directly in front of you is also fascinating.I like sushi, but I'll have to wait a while before I go anywhere else since I think I'm spoiled for a long time.

Definitely a special occasion place,as the omokase runs $130 a person (some people were even adding additional pieces from the ala carte menu, so maybe they'r even more special than I am).Only thing I was slightly disappointed with is that while they do have an extensive list of sakes and other spirits and someone able to offer a lot of excellent advice in choosing them, I might have preferred a specific sake course, so I could also get more familiar with these. I think it would have added to the evening, and s with many of the bottles being very expensive it would have been nice to have a taste of some. As it was we ended up with a carafe of a very nice, dry sake, and that was plenty to take us through a meal.

I haven't eaten in the Izakaya yet, but would be glad to do so. The sushi rolls are prepared at the same counter as the nigiri and looked wonderful,though not part of our meal. While the Sushi bar's 10 seats quickly fill up with reservations 30 days out, the Izakaya takes no reservations at all. A good tip might be to check out when the seatings are for the sushi bar, as often the seats at the (drinking) bar are filled up with people waiting for dinner in back, as they hold you up until everything is ready. When the dinner seating comes, seats often open up at the bar, which would be a comfortable place to dine and watch the anime projected on the walls. There's a nice selection of whiskeys, beer and wine along the sakes.
