3.5☆ 12/18/16 Rock Japanese Cuisine

The ventures for a after Congee snack before dinner. Satisfying the craving with sushi and a delight.

Came by this place for a lunch session, and it wasn’t bad. As you walk up to the place it’s at the corner, and the door is on the side. Came here mid-day on a Sunday at approximately 2PM and got seated pretty quickly. There was no wait so there was no issues with that and got offered a water on the get go. Ordered the bento box and it seemed to be pretty good with value for $15 dollars. Tried the Mango Spider Roll and liked the texture of the tobiko with the avocado. Thought the Mango was a little too sweet. Also had the Jay Roll and the hamachi was fresh and flavorful.

Other Notes:

-Wings were pretty typical and just fried

-Gyoza was crisp

4☆ 12/17/16 Corridor SF

Came to this place after passing by many times and figured it was a good opportunity to come after a show at the SF Symphony. Seems like an interesting place that had a very open design yet very modern. Situated on the bottom floor of the building it seems like a very welcoming place. Came here during their Happy Hour and they were offering beer, wine, and mocktails for $5. Started off food with their Grüner wine and some appetizers before the main course.

 

Thoughts on the Grüner wine. Never that type of wine, so it was enlightening to be able to try it. Being a White Wine, it’s flavor profile seems to be quite positive. Not as sweet as a Sav Blanc and a lot drier. Good for people who enjoy that type of thing, and recommend trying out once.

The Monkey Bread. A pretty decadent of fluffy bread topped off with some baked cheese on the top with a light layer of basil aioli.

The spicy meatballs were not as spicy as most people think. I would think the Tomato probably offset it, but it had a nice sweet sauce that would compliment the meatballs well. The croutons were crunchy soaked well in the tomato sauce.

Panning the horizon for the flatbread, it ended up tasting alright with the different dips. Felt the flatbread wasn’t too tasty and the sauces were decent but not as impressive as I would have thought.

Now to the entree. I ended up getting the Pan Roasted Salmon in medium rare compliment with cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and walnut pesto. Thought that the charring on the vegetables gave an excellent effect that would compliment the salmon well. Salmon was very flavorful and did not seem overcooked. Bringing it together was the Walnut Pesto which provided a bit of a nutty yet a bit of an earthy sauce to the food.

Overall I think it’s a good place to grab a decent meal which may be a little pricey. However, their happy hour provides a good value for beer and wine.
