The corner's always been a struggle but I think I've finally found something worth eating there. It's a place called Creasians. Turns out it's actually owned by the son of Sam Woo's restaurant owners- they bought the place a little while back and they've totally redone the kitchen and menu.
I had grilled short ribs on coconut rice- the meat was cooked nicely and had great flavour. My sister had beef teriyaki udon that was tasty too. All the dishes were plated nicely- I looked over at some of the other tables and their plates all looked great. Prices pretty reasonable.
Anyway, nice to actually see a promising place move into that corner. The guys that work there are pretty young but they seem to know what they're doing. Looking forward to going back.
