Ooka and Kome - Who knew?

Hellolaura | Nov 1, 2009 04:08 PM

Today was my birthday dinner night and we decided to steer clear of Philly for the evening due to the World Series, the Eagles game and other venues going on, so we were trying to figure out a nice upscale place to go. We decided to head out for Sushi.

Once we figured out Sushi was the meal of choice, I recalled hearing of Kome, at the Saucon Valley Promenade Shops. I logged on to their site to check out the menu and found that Restaurant Week at the Promenade dining establishments started today. I checked out their menu and it looked good, so we decided to head up there.

We had a great meal for 30 dollars each. My meal started out with a Saucon Valley roll, which was a spicy tuna roll with Avacado slices on it. My entree was a Wasabi Rib Eye, which was really good, served with some type of sauteed mushrooms and then a sampler desert.

Through out the meal we were commenting on how great everything was and that this was even better than Ooka.

At the end of the meal, we were talking to the waiter and asked if the owner of Kome had any other establishments. He replied, "Well actually he does and one of the sister restaurants is up 309 in a town called Montgomeryville named Ooka!" How surprised we were to hear this!

Did anyone know Ooka and Kome were same owners? Anyway, just an interesting tidbit!
