The menu at Kalbi House is a celebration of popular Korean dishes. Small grills built into the tables allow diners to sear up marinated pork ribs and scallops to their liking. Alternatively, the chefs can prepare the entire meal for you, including hot pots filled with noodles and beef tripe or traditional casseroles studded with monkfish and bean curds. But they don't stop there, branching out beyond these Korean specialties to craft a handful of Japanese favorites such as sushi rolls and teriyaki entrees.
Japanese and Thai cuisines share table space within the romantically-lit dining room of Aozora Restaurant. Plates of fresh sushi sporting bites of white tuna or giant clam sit next to steaming plates of pad thai or thai red curry. At one of the restaurant's hibachi tables, a large hibachi grill sizzles hunks of Angus steak or lobster tail. The space includes a large dining room and sushi bar, a separate hibachi room, and a separate private party room.
True to its name, Oriental Beef Asian Fusion Restaurant draws together the cuisines of India, Japan, and Thailand, among other Asian countries, into a deliciously eclectic menu. Even the decor unites disparate elements: a wall of Japanese art books facing a photographic mural of a running waterfall, framed by bamboo-like banquette seating. Meanwhile, meditative flutes play, an aquarium bubbles, and diners sample tastes from all over Asia. Here's a sampling of what you might find on the menu:
For authentic Korean meats fresh off the barbecue, many locals like to swing by S Korean Restaurant. The restaurant's bulgogi??marinated rib-eye??is seared on the grill, just like the roast duck and pork belly that quiet hearty appetites. Buckwheat noodles double as zip lines to help patrons send home leftover octopus stew and spicy, crimson kimchi.
From the bustling streets of Times Square to the equally vivacious streets of Hong Kong, people walk around with smiles after enjoying the japanese barbecue cuisine at Gyu-Kaku. The restaurant has more than 700 locations worldwide, each rooted in the belief that some of the strongest bonds between friends are forged at the dinner table. Groups dine on a huge variety of Japanese dishes, from popular meat and veggie dishes such as Harami Skirt Steak, Kalbi Short Rib, and Mushroom Medley - to unique Japanese-American appetizers such as the Spicy Tuna Volcano, Pork Gyoza Dumplings, and Chicken Karaage. The real excitement takes place around individual grills, however, where diners can barbecue their own slabs of filet mignon, grilled ahi tuna, or chicken with basil sauce until they are ideally tender or encircled by on-duty firemen.
