Most dinners come with one side dish. At The Korea House, however, each dinner comes with many. The sides boast a variety of fresh veggies, including the fermented cabbage that makes up the classic kimchi. The dishes also complement entrees including marinated beef short ribs, grilled chicken breast, and sauteed fresh mackerel; all sauces are homemade. But Korean delicacies aren't the only specialties at The Korea House, which has been in business for nine years. The eatery also whips up sushi rolls in the form of a dragon roll filled with freshwater eel or an alaskan roll starring salmon and crab.
When he made the trek from his native Korea in 1999, sushi chef Charlie Choi brought with him an energetic demeanor and culinary inventiveness. He relies on more than 20 years of sushi-making experience to craft traditional and modern Asian comestibles for his loyal clientele. Meals top bamboo serving trays inside vibrantly colored, themed rooms: natural light spills in through the skylights of a sunroom capped in overhanging tapestries, and a traditional dining room sports glass mosaics and swirling wood-grain chairs. In the warmer months, diners chill out with scoops of mochi ice cream as winds whispering faint chopstick tutorials flit through the cool, cobalt-blue décor of the patio.
Dancing Sushi Japanese Steakhouse knows the secret to a great sushi roll is freshness. That’s why it uses only the freshest ingredients and USDA Choice beef. Specialty rolls include the Kentucky Derby, made with deep-fried shrimp, cucumber, and avocado, all topped with spicy crab, tempura flakes, and unagi sauce. The Mango Tango roll pairs spicy crabmeat with tempura shrimp, topped with sweet mango and eel sauce. For a more dramatic meal, expert chefs with a flair for showmanship flip and sizzle meats at the fiery hibachi grill.
Don't let the name mislead you. Though the restaurant is called Mr. Sushi, the menu is expansive and includes traditional dishes from all over eastern Asia. Those seeking noodles to twirl around a fork or spell "I love sushi" with can choose from pad thai, lo mein, or udon. Korean favorites such as beef short rib kalbi and bul kogi slide onto tables alongside hibachi steak or salmon teriyaki. And of course, there's the sushi, served in combinations selected by the chef in maki or atop sticky rice.
