Sakaya Kitchen is the brick and mortar restaurant that stems from Dim Ssam a Go Go. This food truck turned restaurant offers Asian fusion at its finest that borrows from a variety of Asian cuisines and mashes them well with American cuisine. Offerings like Bulgogi Chunk’d Tots, Bulgogi burgers, Duck Baos, and Korean Fried Chicken Wings are some of what is on the menu.
We started out with an order of the Chunk’d Tots ($10), which is like a loaded tater plate. Perfectly crisp tater tots are covered in nacho cheese and topped with green onions and bulgogi beef strips. The beef is slightly charred and grilled and such a good flavor. Nice thicker strips of bulgogi, which I find uncommon compared to the thinly sliced versions you find. The tots are perfect also.
An order of Korean Fried Chicken Wings ($8) come with a plate of 6 wings that are deep fried and lightly coated in a sweet sauce. The batter is very crunchy while the meat inside is piping hot. The sauce they use is very light and has a nice soy taste to it. I’m glad they don’t go overboard with the sauce as you can taste mainly the chicken.
The Herbed Sous Vide Duck Sandwich ($13) was my absolute favorite. It is pieces of duck breast and duck leg that is served on what seems like a Hawaiian Bun. The bread is soft while the duck meat is cooked so wonderfully. Rich duck flavor. The meat is so flavorful and the bread is the perfect vessel for it. It also comes with a plate of tots in case you didn’t get your fix.
What we got was just a sample of what they have. So many unique items that I definitely need to come back with a larger group so we can sample more. I want to try the burger, the baos, the rice bowls, and so much more. The staff was so friendly and the place is real cool. Parking is found along the street but it can get packed because of how popular the area is. Definitely worth repeat visits for me.
