Crisis of Identity

I'm always confused by restaurants with apparent crises of identity.

One example is a spot I went to the other night.

Hikari in Liberties Walk.

They call themselves a "Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar"... WELL THEN Hikari, why oh why do you serve Bibimbap?!?!?!? WTF?

The menu reads like this... sushi... Japanese salads... teriyaki... blah, blah, blah, maki, more sushi, Japanese stuff, blah blah blah, and then BAM! "Korean"... they just drop this random Korean section in there like no one is going to notice that they are two totally different cuisines from two totally different countries in two totally different geographic locations.


I can not tell a lie, the sushi wasn't bad. But it's still weird!

Looky Here Dumplin'

Glorious, cheap. Soup filled dumplings at Dim Sum Garden.

The place itself is under that creepy concrete situation on N. 11th street. Scareeeee!
But it's worth nearly dying and/or contracting ebola from the door handles. Believe me, the chances of death are slim and the food is great.

Sugary Heven

Sweettooth has some crazy good candy, including chocolate covered cake batter.

Not sure how long they can last though. I mean, how profitable can a candy store be on 4th and Bainbridge...? It just seems like you'd need to sell a lot of candy to a lot of people with tattoos to make any money. So go! Give them some biznatch.
