kiriko dinela lunch

FAR more than i had any right to expect at this price--both in terms of quality and quantity.

the high point:
Yellowtail carppaccio
Thin sliced yellowtail sashimi with organic spicy baby greens, jalepeno on top

the low point:
the rice

definitely will be returning there before restaurant week is over.

  1. Good to hear, even with my well-known disdain for DineLA in general.

    Kiriko usually overperforms and tries to make each customers happy. What was so bad about the rice?

    1. re: J.L.

      the rice was somewhat gummy

      but looking at the big picture, this was a minor point.
      i never expected to get this much fish of this quality for such a low price.

      overall, i am more than very pleased with kiriko.

    2. the SO went yesterday for dinner and also mentioned the quality of rice was not what she expected.

      FWIW, the 3 chef specialty thing for the first course ended up being oyster, octopus, and monkfish liver.
