Comfort Japanese? Yes Please.

For some reason, spring has decided to be very rude and take back whatever nice weather it teased us with a week ago. So tonight, in the misplaced cold, my roommate and I decided to try out a new Japanese restaurant in our neighborhood: Kasadela, at Ave. C and 11th. The warm flavors of the tapas-style dishes, and the cozy atmosphere were the perfect remedy for the cold weather. We were even warmed up enough that we got Big Gay Ice Cream afterwards...

All the dishes that we got were excellent. If you're looking for a more unique Japanese dining experience, aka taking a break from the usual spicy tuna roll, then look no further. The prices are right, the service was great, and all around it's a perfect place for an intimate dinner. Here are some of the dishes we got:

Bok Choy sauteed with ginger, garlic, and scallions

Kimchee (spicy pickled vegetables--in this case, cabbage)

Beef teriyaki skewers. The beef was very well cooked and the teriyaki sauce was pretty addictive. 

Grilled chicken with miso and yuzu soy marinated vegetables

Ok this was soo delicious. Fried chicken coated in grated potato, served with a creamy jalepeno sauce. 

And I didn't even mention the huge sake selection they have. Probably because I know nothing about sake, but for anyone who does, I'm guessing this place will warm you up in yet another way.
