daiwa sushi

oopsies, i did put an extra zero, hehe. from what i remember i had a toro (not sure if it was a chu or otoro), maguro, hamachi, uni, ebi, anago, and one other piece i don't remember. there was also a tamago and a 6 or 8 piece roll, half of which was a ikura roll and the other half a tuna roll. comes also with a fish based miso soup which was absolutely delicious.

daiwa sushi

Just had it this morning and I don't speak a lick of japanese. The sushi guy in front figured out i only spoke english (i'm asian) and said "sushi set"? and i nodded. as he gave me each piece he said the name of the fish in english although i would have understood if he had said it in japanese. it was awesome. highly recommend! it was 35,500 for the set per person.

Looking for Best Sliced Tongue / Tongue Sandwich (Deli/Butcher Shop)

I saw andrew zimmerman eat a tongue sandwich on his nyc episode of his show at carnegie deli on 6th ave. it looked pretty tasty. it was sliced very thin and the sandwich itself was very thick.

New location for Cambodian Cuisine?

Are there any updates to the restaurant opening? I read the NYT article about his situation and it breaks my heart. Hopefully it's up and running by now?

anything NEW in koreatown?

I've been to pretty much every korean restaurant in Ktown and I found a new favorite, Madangsui. It's located on 35th st between 5th and 6th ave. I believe they opened a few months ago. The banchan is pretty large and food very tasty. I've recommended it to a few friends of mine and they've all raved.

Jacques Imo's lost their lease =(

I've had a lot of fond memories there with mardi gras celebrations to eating their yummy fried chicken. Apparently, their last night is Oct 20th. I'm so sad they're leaving!

BIG screen for the BIG game??

Tonic on 7th ave between 48th/49th st has HUGE jumbo sized screens and good food. I advise to get there super early as it gets crowded FAST before the world cup games.

really good sushi and experience at Sachiko's on Clinton

I, too, had a very positive experience at Sachiko's last week, so much so that I went there again a few days later for dinner. Both friends I went with loved the place as well. Almost everything we ordered was flawless. The service was very well versed with everything on the menu and specials and gave great recommendations. I'm pretty picky with sushi/japanese food and this has become my new go to restaurant for such cuisine. Like the original poster, I, too, was perplexed by how empty it was, even on a friday evening. I hope that isn't a sign to come.
