Although split ends, split-ups, and 7-10 splits are a pox upon the house of humankind, split restaurants offer all the vivaciousness and rewards of a totally non-gratuitous and narrative-forwarding Jean-Claude Van Damme split. Enjoy the cuisine of contrasting halves with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Japanese and Korean cuisine and drink from Norito Hwaro, located in Rockville. This Groupon is only valid toward dine-in.
Norito Hwaro offers a duo of decadent dining, with patrons having the choice between Norito or Hwaro seating upon their arrival to the restaurant. Flip a coin, or emulate the atom-splitting work of Ernest Walton and John Cockcroft and split up your party, and delve into Norito's Japanese menu or Hwaro's Korean menu. Highlights of Norito's nourishment include the edamame ($5)—steamed soybeans—or a traditional Nabeyaki udon bowl ($12) brimming with thick noodles, seafood, and organic veggies, and numerous sushi and sashimi options ($13–$50). All are capable of whisking palates away to the land of the rising tongue.
Cuisiniers crusading for Korean sustenance can opt for items from Hwaro's heap of offerings. Among them are Korean fried dumplings ($11), the fun-to-say and fun-to-eat flavor of the bibimbop ($12)—a rice bowl with assorted vegetables and side sauce—and a celebrated selection of Korean barbecue dishes ($17–$59).
Chefs with more than 30 years of experience run both the Korean and Japanese kitchens at Norito Hwaro in their respective national culinary traditions. Settle into savory eats alongside both of your personalities with a memorably schismatic dinner at Norito Hwaro.
Not valid for lunch buffet.
- Hwaro is already a hit with the Korean community. Waiters move rapidly and serve with cheer. The dining room gets busy early on weekday evenings. While Hwaro's dining room is energetic and bright, the adjoining Norito Sushi "Brasserie" is subdued and lounge-like, serving superb sushi and sashimi, bento box lunches, numerous noodle dishes, salads and delicacies from the grill and the fryer. Particularly tasty are the cucumber salad with shrimp and sesame, and the seared tuna salad. – Brian Patterson, The Gazette
