Daring. Different. Delicious. There’s high end dining. There’s low end dining. And then there’s everything else in between. I like to introduce you to another level. Have an open appetite and get ready to plunge into.....

Wassada is not a typical Japanese sushi place but a Korean that provide it's basically a variation of the Japanese concept, but it’s also much more.

For starters, wasabi is not quite the indispensable condiment as it is with its Japanese counterpart.Cho jang, a vinegar and soy sauce based dipping sauce, is the slathering of choice. But don’t worry, wasabi is always nearby on standby but not necessarily used.

Some other odd yet fascinating points of cultural preference are the texture and size of the raw cuts of fish. Korean sushi and sashimi restaurants mostly serve them in bigger portions (roughly twice the size of a tradition-bound Japanese joint). Japanese sushi houses believe strongly that sushi or sashimi should be eaten in one comfortable bite. With Korean sashimi, size does matter. The bigger, the better. At Wassada, they can and will sashimi everything, from the lopsided, flat flounder to the strange sea squirt and the crunchy abalone to the lowly yet tasty gaebul or sea worm.

      I've been here several times and food here is generally very good, but sometimes services can be inconsistent depending how busy they are. We ordered, $149 per 4 people sashimi dishes and paid $48 per person including tax and tip. They gave us live lobsters, Uni, oysters, sashimi and bunch of side dishes. Also, chef gave us complementary plate of sea squirt and it was outstanding. Unlike some members comment about Korean sashimi place as not as impressive as Japanese restaurant should definitely try this place. Also, if you are a drinker and offer a drink to a chef, you end up getting more free stuff.
