    In the near words of Iron Chef America, eat at Saburi with an open mind and a half empty stomach. The taste is primarily Chinese, but Saburi is a Japanese restaurant, so expect Japanese restaurant prices and portions. Saburi's gyu tan, beef tongue, is exceptional enough to be mistaken for tender slabs of steak. If your're tired of takeout fried rice made with frozen mixed vegetables and too much soy sauce, try the takana gohan. The finely diced pickled mustard greens and thin strips of red ginger add extra crunch and umami to the fried rice. Thickened with corn starch and egg and rouged and flavored with ketchup and Sriracha, the ebi chili may be one of the spiciest things you can eat in a Japanese restaurant unless you want to pop a ball of wasabi paste into your mouth. Saburi, the only purveyor of Wafu Chuka in NYC, is to be commended for providing its hard to find comfort food to homesick expats and curious diners.
