A prime location and vast menu make Wakoya a top pick for Japanese cuisine, along with a number of Seoul-food options thrown in by the Korean-born chef. For sushi lovers especially, there is no shortage of options. The Mark’s roll – tempura yam, smoked salmon, and cucumber dotted with mesquite house sauce – reenergize familiar tastes with pristine presentation. A single page of Korean fare features classics like bulgogi, (‘fire-meat’) a tender beef and vegetable medley served with rice. In a cuisine where gochujang is as common as salt, stomach-scalding eats are the norm.
