With more than 20 years of culinary experience under his belt, the chef at MaTaNe Japanese Dining is a master of crafting quintessential Japanese cuisine. He expertly slices sushi-grade fish for sashimi, stirs buckwheat noodles into simmering soups, and plates chilled soba noodles with flavorful dipping sauce. But beyond these Japanese classics, the chef also prepares Korean dishes such as bulgogi and bibimbap?which considering his stints cooking at the Radisson Seoul Plaza Hotel and other South Korean hotspots is a natural fit. The feasts from his multifaceted menu unfold in a wood-lined dining room, which is decorated with persimmon-orange walls and orchids that turn to face the bar whenever the bartender cracks open a bottle of sake.
Kimcheese serves each order of Asian-Mexican fusion food under the guiding principle that fresh, handmade food makes for better a meal. The Korean barbecue burgers, tacos, and burritos are filled with hearty ribeye beef marinated in a house sauce. And the fixings receive the same care and consideration: The staff makes pico de gallo in-house, heats tortillas, and slices up fresh vegetables twice per day.
The Song family behind O! Wing Plus infuses wings, wraps, and salads with a touch of Korean flavor. The menu's nine signature sauces swaddle succulent poultry and range in heat from the fiery Beast Mode to the Bee-Bee-Q, a smoky, sweet, and mild concoction. O's Original sauce, made with caramelized brown sugar and spiked with red-pepper flakes, hovers in the middle of the spectrum and clings to wings ($6.59–$58.99) and boneless strips ($6.99–$23.99), which can be purchased alone, in combos ($5.99–$16.99), or in family packs ($14.99–$28.69).
