Ahn Sushi & Soju stocks barren bellies with fresh Japanese and Korean menu items reeled in from all corners of the oceanic fish bowl, and slakes gullets with sake and signature soju cocktails, colossal libations mixed in hollowed fruits. The unagi sushi's barbecue-infused eel ($5) seduces taste buds while a quintet of toro sashimi ($25.95) softly croons melodies of the seafaring life. Take piscatorial matters into your own hands with the bento box combo dinner, which cordons off a trio of customer-culled fare, such as a crab-stuffed california roll, tangy chicken teriyaki, or a spicy tuna roll ($17.95). Chefs draw upon Korean muses to craft the boneless beef jumuluck kalbi, bathed in a special house sauce ($19.95), or the saeng kalbi, charcoal barbecued short ribs ($19.95).

K-Pop Korean Restaurant combines the peninsula's famed cuisine with a soundtrack that keeps toes tapping as mouths try to keep up. As chefs put together the myriad ingredients in bibimbap rice bowls or Korean barbecue wraps, surrounding TVs play the colorful, sometimes frenetic, music videos that accompany famed K-pop hits. Dimmed track lighting makes the dining room feel intimate, relying on the bright lights of the kitchen, the floor-to-ceiling windows, and the glowing laser eyes of pop stars to illuminate the restaurant instead.
