Boru Boru, a Kosher Asian comfort food restaurant, opened on Sunday at 774 Amsterdam Avenue at 98th Street. There’s a wide range of food, from Korean fried wings to pastrami ramen to shaved vegetable salad.
This is how they explain it on the website: “We’re inspired by the streets of the Lower East Side and the Bowery and the many tastes that have existed here since the 1920s. We incorporate these cultures – Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and Eastern European – in everything we do. ” The menu is here. Thanks to David and Naomi for the tips.
Dark Bullet Sake & Oyster Bar, which has been getting ready to open for months at 154 West 72nd Street, is having a soft open, Sue and Mike tell us. The menu is limited so far, but is mostly Japanese items, they wrote. As seen above, they clearly have a wide array of sake.
