King had a soft opening this week that knocked Westmount's socks off. I went to lunch there today after a friend of mine raved about their Bibomap earlier this week.The restaurant was full except for one spot at the Bar. A full restaurant at Lunch on the fourth day open usually spells disaster. But this brand new restaurant handled the crowd as if they had been in business for 20 years.
The restaurant is the creation of Chef King (ex Sushi Chef at Kaizen) the restaurant is a combo of Korean, classic Japanese and Izakaya.
I chose the $15 Bento Box for lunch. My box contained a delicious crab roll, a Japanese flavored "Cobb Style Salad",Grilled Shrimps with Red Peppers and Brussel Sprouts and Chicken Balls ( Not what you might think) on a bed of super tasty Quinoa salad.
The staff was super helpful and when I told them I can't wait to come back for Dinner they told me to try the Omakase Dinner which is the Chef's choice of the run of the menu and more off menu creative delicacies.
This is a restaurant that must be tried before it gets Kaza type line ups!!
