Neighborhood: Northern Liberties
Related reviews: Koi Restaurant
Cuisine type: Japanese
Style: The owners of Kissen in Old City have brought an ultra-modern, glass-enclosed Japanese nook to Northern Liberties decked out with shining copper fixtures, bold red counters, and molded white plastic chairs. The service and kitchen have a few shortcomings; but there are some good items from the tempura bar menu and several interesting, creative maki rolls from the sushi counter.
Specialties: Tempura menu: sea urchin with shiso leaf; shrimp; scallop; baby sawagani crabs. Sushi: spicy tuna with unagi maki; hot dog maki. Cooked foods: roasted scallion soup with scallop; chicken ramen soup.
Hours: Mon-Fri (lunch) Mon-Sat (Dinner)
