65 High Street
The Damage: £8 each-ish, again!
The Background: Our Korean restaurant crawl continues. We’ve been to Hamgipak–my favorite–and You Me. And I’ve been very impressed with our restraint. In our previous two stops, we’ve shared just two dishes among(st) three people.
I ordered at Hamgipak. Limster ordered at You Me. So we put Oonth in charge of ordering here, our third and final stop. (We may have done a fourth stop if anything else had been open!) He picks out some nigri and some hand rolls…just a few and just enough to fill us up.
Part of me wants another Korean pancake.
The Food: The nigri is cold. Very cold. Too cold. The unagi–eel–is great, but it feels high margin. They’ve cut it very thin. It looks very graceful there, across its bed of rice. But it doesn’t feel fat and generous. Hmmm.
The Verdict: I thought the service at KJ was sweet and the decor is pretty clean and modern. But the fish was so very cold. Almost as if it was still defrosting when they served it to us.
