Roaring Bowl

Critic rating: Star rating

Good food, the convivial clamor of people conversing over shared pots of soup, and a lively techno soundtrack add up to roaring fun at this casual, compact eatery. The concept amounts to an intro to Asian street food with a menu focused on three items: kushiyaki, robata-grilled skewered meats and fish; gamjatang, the Korean pork-bone soup; and the signature dish, shabu-shabu, a DIY Japanese eating experience involving pots of bubbling broth.
