$20 for $40 Worth of Upscale Korean and Japanese Cuisine and Drinks
The menu features specialty sushi rolls such as the Volcano roll with shrimp, crab tempura, and spicy salmon sashimi ($12.99) as well as seven varieties of teriyaki ($12.99+). Korean specialties include bulgogi, a traditional korean beef dish ($16.99), and tableside barbecue ($16.99–$29.99).
Many of the tables at Arisu are hewn from thick, solid blocks of wood strong enough to support heavy metal sculptures. Diners may appreciate that sturdiness when bowl upon bowl of kimchi, pickled vegetables, and relish start to accumulate. These small cold dishes are part of Arisu’s traditional Korean barbecue, which pairs them with table-grilled entrees of pork belly, short ribs, and beef.
In addition to Korean specialties, chefs serve traditional Japanese dishes such as sushi, teriyaki, and donburi. Some meals creatively fuse Korean and Japanese food: chefs stir-fry japanese udon noodles with spicy korean sauce, for instance, and layer bibimbap salad with slices of sashimi. Dishes also pair with libations from a vast drink menu that features japanese sakes and korean herb and fruit wines.
You can't go wrong with the bibimbap, table top BBQ or hwedupbab. The owners are really friendly too!Steve L., 9/24/12
