- Nosh's fried rice of the day.
First, a sushi salad ($11) of butter leaf wedges soaked in a nice citrus ponzu vinaigrette falls apart when its spicy tuna roll leads with hard, crunchy rice followed by an unpleasant fishy finish flavor. Next, a fried rice of the day (an overly steep $15), in this case bulgogi, sports one-note (soy sauce) rice (with no wok hay), and proper beef tenderness but none of the typical flavor depth (including mild sweetness) of the Korean favorite. Most disappointing, a pork belly BLT ($13) tastes not of the sacred gooey stuff nor added bacon nor pickled kale topping, but only of grill char — a ghost of a sandwich. We spy no listed “Chinese mustard” in the mix, receiving ramekins of Dijon and sweet mustard dip instead upon inquiry. A mystery all round.
