What You'll Get
The carefully rolled nature of sushi makes it ideal for starting snowballs, which is why it's commonly known as "snowman heart." Eat to the center of snow with today's Groupon to SooWoo Japanese Steakhouse. Choose between these two options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of dinner fare.
- For $15, you get $30 worth of lunch fare.
From hand rolls to hibachi and katsu to kimchee, SooWoo Japanese Steakhouse applies fresh ingredients to traditional recipes, curbing cravings for mouthwatering Japanese and Korean cuisine. Asian excursions can open with a serving of spicy tuna tartar, doused in hot sesame oil, japanese mayo, masago, and scallion ($13.50), followed by an innovative nori morsel such as the Sofia roll, a salmon- and crab-laden bundle assembled with banana tempura and avocado topped with eel ($13.45). The creative concoctions continue with the lobster roll, a crustacean core surrounded by lettuce, masago, avocado, and asian pear seasoned with a savory precipitation of scallions, spicy mayo, and crispy flakes ($16.45). Diners who missed out on Julia Childs' short-lived stunt-bike career can still indulge in dizzying displays of culinary prowess at the teppan yaki tables, where eaters devise dishes of marinated Korean bul-go-gi ($9.95/lunch, $19.95/dinner) or hibachi shrimp ($10.95/lunch, $17.95/dinner) to be sautéed before their eyes. SooWoo also features an array of traditional Korean entrees and an entree-escorting wine and sake selection. Meal melees come to decadent final blows with desserts such as the delicately fried tempura cheesecake, proving once again that fried desserts defy cultural categorization ($5.95).
Though reviewers are polarized on the service, Yahoo! Locals give Soo Woo Japanese Steakhouse an average of three stars. Twenty Yelpers also give Soo Woo three stars and 66% of Urbanspooners recommend it.
- My impression of the place is that of a modern sushi bar where people go to hang, nibble on hours d'ouvres, enjoy Japanese Saki and beer. – Yendi V., Yelp, 6/28/10
- Not only do the proprietors have a distinct sense of what quality sushi is, but it certainly seeps through into their diverse concepts of cuisine. – doralbizpoint, Yahoo! Local

About The Soo Woo
Beneath the colorful toques on their heads, hibachi chefs flip and sauté meat and vegetables on their tabletop grills, smiling as they conjure the occasional bursts of flame during lively cooking routines. That’s just one scene at SooWoo Japanese Steakhouse—across the restaurant, sushi chefs slice ribbons of fish and vegetables and roll them into California and spicy tuna rolls. Basketball fans can celebrate the city’s 2012 NBA championship with the specialty Miami Heat roll, which includes slices of shrimp tempura, crab, and cream cheese. SooWoo also whips up Korean dishes, such as bulgogi and pork belly.
