Jimmy and I went back to Arisu not too long ago, and we actually loved it! Just wanted to add to this post because a lot people have been stumbling upon our post about Arisu recently. New post (as of July 17th, 2010) can be found here!

Once upon a time, Lucy and Jimmy heard that the owners of Mr. Dumpling were opening a new sushi restaurant across the street. Excited by this idea, they decided to visit the new place, Arisu.
Though the menu was completely different from Mr. Dumpling’s, they were expecting to get the same type of food. Lucy ordered the bulgogi bento box (not pictured), and Jimmy ordered the kalbi bento box.
First came the salad. It was an iceberg lettuce salad with shredded carrot and light, citrus dressing. Both Lucy and Jimmy agreed it tasted okay—not bad, not good, just okay.
Next came the soup. This was a plain miso soup was made with only white (shiro) miso. Again, Lucy and Jimmy agreed it tasted okay—not bad, not good, just okay.
Last came the bentos. Both of the bentos looked exactly the same, except Lucy’s bento had bulgogi (not pictured) and Jimmy’s had kalbi. Both of the bentos came with tempura (shrimp and vegetables), tofu, a California roll, and a large scoop of rice. Lucy and Jimmy agreed all of the items tasted okay—not good, not bad, just okay.
After paying their bill, they walked home and talked about their meals. Because nothing was good, nothing was bad, and all the dishes were just okay, Lucy and Jimmy decided that they would never return. Lucy and Jimmy agreed that they would go back to Mr. Dumpling, the original restaurant. After crossing Arisu off their restaurant list, they lived happily ever after.
