I forgot to take a shot of the Vegan Buckwheat Noodles dish I ordered which was delish!  But, I didn't forget that Coconut Cream Pie!  Mmmmmm!

I had heard from a friend how the Kobe burger, $16, at the Fish was one of the best burgers he's had...I tried it, it was fine.  I wouldn't describe it as the best burger I've ever had...but Nick had the short ribs bento lunch box that looked great!  And our server charged me for the dinner portion instead of what I ordered, lunch portion, $12...just saying...

I was excited to try, I like the atmosphere and on our food we ordered the squash fritters, the Nicoise salad and I got the tagliatelle pasta and I thought all the food was fine, good. I have to be honest I wasn't wow food and honestly. But it also forget the poached tuna on our salad which when they finally brought it out was not very good and I'm glad they did that all of the salad because I would have eaten. But it was nice because they comped us on that dish.  Overall, I wasn't crazy about the place, but it's not bad.

Is located in an undescript location Wesleyan and W. Alabama and it's a modern, upscale atmosphere, very nice!  We ordered most of the signature dishes and quite honestly they were good but wasn't a wow experience.  We ordered the yellowtail appetizer, sweet corn, and a few rolls and they were all good but nothing wowed me, other than the chocolate dessert, that was amazing!  And I wasn't even in the mood for chocolate!  Overall, not a bad experience, I'll definitely have to go back, this time for dinner!

Seriously the best tofu dish!  And now they have finally moved and I can go more often since no one would ever go with me at their own location that smelled of sewage, ick!

The atmosphere was nice, cozy and ecclectic, but I'm not gonna lie the food was not that great.  We only tried the churros, which looked amazing but it was pretty bland and definitely not worth recommending.  But doesn't it look so good?

It's every bit as crowded as they say.  It probably took us about 20 mins to get through the initial line and another 15 in the pay line.  Upon entering yiu head straight back and pick up a tray and tongs and just start selecting pastries.  Some of the items are without labels so I enlisted help from 2 separate staffer and asked what are the best items.  The items that both staffers mentioned I made sure to get.  The items that I definitely think are worth getting are the Brioche Bread, Egg Custard and the circular pastry with the jelly center (pictured at bottom right), I couldn't remember what the name was but I think it was taro something.  Their milk teas weren't bad either.  Oh and by the way, it's in Bellaire Chinatown, so it's kind of a drive, but definitely worth a visit!

Great decor!  I'm feeling like I'm in South Korea!  Service was awesome, the managers came by often to check in on us and our server was really great and friendly.  On the food, it wasn't quite what I was expecting.  I was thinking it was going to be traditional Korean food and it was not.  It's both a modern take on Korean food and also more fun food?  Like wings, brisket, other dishes I had never had at a Korean restaurant like "cheesy corn", which was a cast iron pan of cheese and corn and I was told is a common bar food item in Korea.  Anyway, I wasn't expecting the style, but I have to say some of the dishes were really good like the garlic soy wings, the brisket, rice cake, but next time I'd like to try some of their more traditional items like the galbi and soups.  I really liked the dessert too it was just ice cream over popped rice and really simple and tasty, we devoured it and baby loved it too!  Can't wait to go back and give the more traditional items a try!

I love the decor of this restaurant!  It was just so cozy and adorable!  The outdoor patio was cute too.  I believe it's the former Corner Table location, now seafood and French restaurant.  We got the salmon galvaz appetizer, the quinoa salad, I got the fish of the day (sole) and Matt got the filet mignon (lacked flavor and was chewy), and dessert was the strawberry shortcake desert...every thing was good, but they're still early in process, maybe a month open, officially 2 weeks.  They didn't have a wine menu nor a dessert menu, yet.  The atmosphere, minus the lack of people, was really nice, maybe for dinner they turn down the lights a tad, but even the way it was it was a nice atmosphere and the food was good, service was excellent.
