For the Pork Lover in You – My foodie friend chose this restaurant for his birthday party. And being the good friend that he is, he informed us in advance that Hakata's specialties are pork (pig's feet) and collagen. It'll be good for your skin, he said, trying to convince us. Hmmm, interesting. The restaurant describes themselves as Authentic Kyushu Japanese Soul Food. I went there that night feeling adventurous so I ordered small dishes of the Famous Homemade (Collagen) Gyoza and Grilled Pork Tonsoku (pig's feet). I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty it was. Our large group ordered almost everything on the menu so, in a way, we made our own tasting menu of sorts. My friends particularly enjoyed their garlic fried rice and hot pots. A non-pork-eater among us had a little trouble sifting through the meat heavy menu but was able to find some solace in the sashimi, salad and chicken wings. The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. I'll definitely be back... for my skin.
pork feet more expeansive than sushi – I went there, is it new style? Without any decoration, I was sitting at bar counter facing to a plain wall. 2 half pieces of slow cocked pork feet charged $8, mostly is fat and bone. Come on, is pork feet much more expensive than fresh tuna? The fried rice was so sticky and too strong tasty to finish. Don?t waste time and money.
Innovative Japanese Pork Restaraunt – I was a bit skeptical at first about eating dishes made exclusively from pigs feet, but it turned out to be an amazing meal. All the food is very flavorful and rich, and the portions are tapas sized so you can get a bunch of dishes to share. Definitely don't go if you are expecting the usual japanese dishes, but if you're up for something new, and you like pork, give it a try. The staff is very courteous and attentive as well.
Editorial Review – Fusion dishes combines Japanese tonsoku with Vietnamese, French, Korean, and Chinese dishes for a delicious late night meal in Greenwich Village.
