I have to mention that they graciously accommodated us despite the fact that we were 30 minutes late!
Dishes came super fast and everything was delicious. Octopus and steak with noodles were highlights. My least favorite was Ribeye as it was too large but not trimmed just right and therefore was unevenly cooked and had too much fat.
Can’t wait to come again !

The best asian fusion restaurant in San Francisco is this one. Dont go by the external looks...its China Town after all. Go for it you wont regret. Wish I could have tried them more..every dish was uniquely prepared to touch your taste buds. Didnt get to taste the desserts but the appetizers and the main course was mind blowing and reasonably priced. Would highly recommend.

Haven't been back to San Fran for 2 years,
But this little place is what and why we come back,
Tiny in size but big on taste and innovation can't go past the tuna tartare or wasabi noodles. I have never had an average meal here, But even their brûlée is sublime.

I like to spend the day in the city and try a new restaurant. This time was The House. If you're coming by on a weekend afternoon, it might be a good idea to have a reservation, as it can get full inside. Here is what I tried:

Deep Fried Salmon Roll - Simply incredible. It came out hot, crunchy, and the salmon was not overdone. Don't be afraid to try it with the chinese mustard-- it seems like it might be spicy, but it's delicious. I'd come back just for this dish alone.

Unagi Avocado Sandwich - I really wanted to like this, but there were a couple of things wrong with it-- the bread was way too toasted. The toastiness/char on the bread took away from the unagi and avocado. I would have preferred that the bread by lightly toasted so that I could get everything in a single bite.

Udon Noodle Soup - A wholesome, hearty soup, and perfect to help you get over a cold. I was prepared for the chicken breast to be slightly overdone (which wouldn't have mattered to me, since I know it'd be swimming in the broth), but to my surprise it was simply perfect. Still juicy and tender. The broth itself packed a little bit of a kick, and the cherry tomatoes packed a neat little burst of umami in every bite. Impressed and pleasantly surprised.

샌프란에 올때마다 꼭 빼놓지 않고 가는 레스토랑입니다. 원래는 한국분들에게 그다지 유명한 것 같지는 않은데 올해 부터는 한국분들도 많이 보이시더라구요.
제가 제일 좋아하는 메뉴는 비프와사비누들과 폭찹입니다.
Warm wasabi house noodles (Angus flatiron steak)
* Kurobuta pork chop (pomegranate currant sauce)
* 진짜 맛있으니 꼭 드셔보시길 ㅠ_ㅠ
와사비누들은 꼭 비프여야 맛있는데 비프는 디너에만 있는 걸로 알고 있습니다.
에피타이저는 다 맛있어서 우열을 가릴 수 없고 ㅎㅎ
디저트로는 단걸 좋아해서 크림뷔릴레가 짱이예요
쓰면서도 또 가고 싶어요 ㅠㅠ
단점이라면 가게가 좀 작아 옆테이블과 너무 가깝다는 점인데
괜찮습니다. 맛있으니까~ >_<
