This joint is hipster heaven. Before buying the deal, I read a review that called it "reminiscent of a tattoo parlor's secret bordello." When I walked in I was like, "Yeah, I see that." This place is known for having a mishmash of American and Asian foods. Sushi? Check. Lots of fried stuff? Check. Tater tots? Double check.
We had a good time here. At the least the food is entertaining and a little silly, and at the most it's tasty and comforting. Our bill was bigger than I would expect if I hadn't seen the prices.
We shared the following: ribs, Jolly Green Wontons (vegetarian soybean wasabi wantons), Sticky Balls (sriracha rice, tuna, crab, etc) , the Chili Roll sans jalapeno, sesame chicken with udon noodles (my least favorite, it wasn't very sesame-ey), and PBR. Well we didn't share the PBR, we sprung for separates.
The Sticky Balls are fun to order and eat. I didn't love our apps, mostly because it was fry city. I'd go back and do sushi and beer only.

Metro: Schlep from Union Station or take the bus. We drove because I came straight from work in outer Mongolia.
