Admittedly, we only tried this restaurant because Hakata Shinsengumi across the street had too long a wait list. But it turned out to be a nice find! We had a party of 8, so we sat at a large table in the middle of the restaurant. The appetizer of the day was a seafood ceviche with kimchee; quite tasty. The party ordered various dishes that ranged from tempura udon, salmon ramen, bahn mi, to lobster mac and cheese! Everyone enjoyed his/her particular entree. The wait staff was very attentive; always making sure we had enough water and beverage refills. We even received a 10 percent off card for our next visit and a dessert on the house!

Although it is trying to cater and customize your meal . . . it was stressful getting in line and giving them my order. It was noisy and people seem to just want to push you along.
I will not go back.

The food is amazing! We found this place after we couldn't get into crowded places in the area. There was only one other couple. This place should be packed. Anyway this is a must try place.

There were 4 of us so we tried a good sample of the menu and these were the best items. Carolina BBQ bun, lobster Mac, Loco Moco, Banh Mi with pork.

リトル東京の近くにあった、BARの、ようなお店。 テイクアウトをしたら、なかなか美味しい味でした。
ケバブサンドは日本でも、よく食べるのですが、フレッシュ野菜たっぷりのブリトーは、やっぱり美味しい♪

Just stopped in for a quick Allagash White on tap and a quick taco, which the friendly staff was more than willing to serve up with good cheer. The lip-smacking carnitas with peanut sauce was marred by a stale tortilla, which lacked "al vapor" fluffiness. Wish I'd had a bigger appetite that day, as I would have liked to gorge on their signature Poutine, crispy pork belly, potatoes, spicy gravy, and cheddar cheese, which looked unctuous and satisfying on its way to a neighboring table. The wine list is nothing to write home about, but the soju cocktails, sake, and small selection of beers on tap are probably a better foil for the Asian-tinged bar bites, which include an intriguing fried chicken entree with yuzu verde sauce. ... The whimsical urban decor in the small dining room is overshadowed by a monstrous TV monitor (low-def) featuring ESPN. It's pretty hard to escape, and even with the sound off, it's distracting, almost menacing, in its demand for your attention.
