Yes, the sushi love boat for two was absent, but not missed. Among our other dishes were a tomato and avocado salad bathed in a soy wasabi dressing and a dense stack of crepes layered in heavy cream topped with fresh berries for dessert. The menu is a la carte with smaller dishes at a very reasonable prices. Sui Ren’s most expensive plate will set you back a whopping $12.
Catching up with Chang, who also goes by the first name Morgan, it was obvious the new restaurateur feels as if he has lucked out, not only with the space (located conveniently at n.4th and Roebling) but also with the steady stream of customers since Sui Ren’s June 10th opening. Though his project is well underway and receiving great reviews – it is still a work in progress. Planned for the backyard is a Yakai stall which will serve grilled Taiwanese street food. With this addition, Chang hopes to bring in customers looking alternatively for a to-go snack rather than a sit down dinner.
Worth noting is the fact that the Japanese eatery finally got its much coveted liquor license last week and is now serving sake and beer. Chang plans on having a grand opening for his place sometime in August, but I would recommend getting there before then to see what I’m talking about.
