Best Sushi Roll Restaurant w/ English Menu
Printer-friendly version

Anyone know of a good Sushi restaurant that serves a variety of sushi rolls with an English menu?

 To start where are you?

 To start where are you? There are dozens of places across town, but in my opinion most have become more and more Koreanified over the past few years. By that I mean they got drowned in weird sauces and condiments.

The majority of places serving rolls are what I call the Japanese influenced Korean diners. They sell donkass, regular sushi, various Japanese noodles, fried rice, omelettes and the like. There's a good half dozen in the Kyung Sung area alone. Two of which do have English menus. Just walk down the main shopping road and take a right at Paris Baguette. One is on your left halfway down, the other is at the very end on your right. 

With regard the English menu stipulation. Some restaurants do do dual langauage menus, usually in attempt to seem forward thinking and attract Koreans, rather than to help the occassional foreign visitor. However a lot of these places have big pictures and increasingly the dishes displayed in the window a la Japanese style. Pointing gets you far.

I'm in Jangsan. I'm not

I'm in Jangsan.

I'm not looking for Kimbap, which some people will say, "Hey, it's like a sushi roll." I've noticed with the rolls I've bought at grocery stores, they do love the mayonnaise on the rolls which I just don't understand. Any suggestions would be great.

Do you know the names of the ones in Kyungsung?

If you ask for a special

If you ask for a special kimbap like tuna or beef they have to make it up right there. That way you can avoid getting mayoed. I don't think kimbap nara(country) uses mayo in the cheap 1,000w all ready rolled up kimbap.. Why don't you just say to them 'mayo optsumnikka'?

 

WARNING..... I wouldn't ever opt for the 1,000w basic because you don't know how long it's been sitting out and prepared. It's ok this time of year but in summer it's a food poisoning havon. All of that duk-boki standstuff is; avoid it like the plague. 1000 people using the same dipping sauce and double dipping.....yuck!

The places I referred to are

The places I referred to are definitely not kimbap, they are proper sushi rolls or California rols. One of the places in Kyung Sung is called Bom Bom 봄봄 (spring spring I guess). That's the one on the far right. I've never tried the sushi roll there, but have had the sushi many a time, it's good for the price. The other place is about 20 yards before it on the left. Impossible to miss.

Just thought of a couple of more places. One is in Homeplus at Bexco / Centum. It's the conveyer belt style sushi place, they have a mixture of both rolls and normal sushi and every plate is just a 1000 won. Don't be put off by the price it's surprisingly good. It's at the far end by the restaurants before you enter the main store.

The other may I haven't been to for about 3 years, so may be closed, but is in Lotte department store in Seomyeon on the 9th floor right by the elevators on the TGIF end. That was the real deal.
