Sasa Restaurant Review

: Husband-and-wife team Scott and Brenda Kim’s restaurant first introduced the izakaya --- a drinking establishment serving small plates of Japanese-style grilled meats and seafood --- to the area's food scene. The menu is inventive and expansive; however, convivial servers are more than happy to help you navigate. The small, medium and Sasa special plates, which include dumplings, noodles and skewered meats, offer something for every appetite. Choose the agedashi tofu salad or the udon noodle soup to start. Small dishes include edamame, Sasa fries, and a sweet lobster and shrimp harumaki. Salt-and-pepper wild Norwegian mackerel and Kobe beef meatballs elevate the medium dish category, while among large options we like the grilled sampler. Sushi include creative and traditional rolls, which are augmented by a line-up of sashimi. Sasa’s nosh-and-nibble menu is a good match when sipping sakés (there are almost 45 available). Then again, you can always tip back wheat beer infused with green tea. For dessert, we recommend the dense chocolate brownie with green tea ice cream and strawberry purée.
