The Crab and Artichoke Dip came out piping hot. I burnt the roof of my mouth. It was very cheesy and creamy. I tasted the artichoke, but couldn't taste the crab, but Maria did. I guess I was too burnt to notice the difference. Maria had the Oysters; I didn't. They were fresh, and she liked Kusshi more than the other two. The 10oz Pork Chop was amazing. I would order this again and again, but without the Mango Chutney. I'm not a huge fan of Mango Chutney. I rather have a peppercorn sauce, gravy or mushroom cream/gravy. It was grilled to perfection. Each bite was heaven. It was juicy and charred lightly which gave it a smokey essence. I had to hold back the urge to eat everything to the bone. I didn't want to look like an animal, by holding the pork chop by its bone and going to town on it. *SMH*. The Ahi Tuna was amazing as well, but I wish they paired it with another sauce. I think it was a wasabi based sauce, which for some reason I didn't like, and I eat a lot of wasabi. I think the sauce was also diluted with something else. The Special Scallop Roll was good, but I wished the rice was a bit firmer. Each piece was on the verge of falling apart. The scallop was fresh. It was soft and smooth. It had a minimal bounce or chewiness to it. It went down effortlessly. I wanted to order another roll. The Belgian Chocolate pudding was to die for. The pistachio praline hit all the right spots. The portion was decent, and I thought I could finish it all to myself but it was very filling. The pudding and toffee creme didn't feel heavy at first but got to me midway, and I slowed down dramatically. I was full by the end of the meal that I passed out on the ride back home. I felt bad making Maria drive because she felt the same.
Verdict: A great spot for dinner and I heard their brunch is as good if not better. I would love to take my mom here.
