Advice: Reservations suggested.
This past year I have had the chance to explore more flavours and dishes within Korean cuisine, dining at Sura was a wonderful experience. It’s a beautiful dining room with draped tables for larger groups of friends and tables for less closer to the front which is where I was seated. I had the refreshing Green Salad ($8) with assorted vegetables that included lettuce, cucumber, apples and oranges in a soy dressing; I then had one of their specialities, the Japchae ($16) stir–fried savoury potato noodles in sweet sesame oil with beef and mixed vegetables served with home made Kimchi, whipped Kombucha squash and a seaweed salad!
The menu is filled with all sorts of interesting dishes which I would suggest you share with friends or family. There are salads and dumplings, as well as Korean pancakes and ricecakes, hearty stews and soups, barbq, rice and noodles, everything is house-made except for the desserts. I can’t wait to dine again so that I could indulge in their pancakes and barbq.
