I had a great meal at Dabin over the weekend. Dabin is a Japanese/Korean restaurant in Lexington Center. We like to go during lunchtime on Saturdays. There's always open tables, the food is good, and the prices for lunch are an exceptional value (especially compared to the dinner prices)
I like getting the chirashi ($13.95) because the fish is pretty fresh. Honestly, I thought the fish here was tastier than the sushi I had at Daikanyama the week before. In fact, I thought some of the fish at Daikanyama was a bit bland. At the time, I thought it was because I had just come back from Japan where I had enjoyed the best sushi I'd ever had in my life. I thought my tastebuds had been "ruined" for life.
Fortunately, that's not true. I thought the fish in my chirashi was very flavorful. Additionally, the sushi rice in the chirashi is mixed with flying fish roe, which makes for a more colorful and flavorful dish.
Another cool thing is, because it's a Korean restaurant, you get all the free little appetizers in the beginning. Yum . . . .
Some other dishes ordered at my table:
Nabeyaki Udon (which comes with two pieces of shrimp tempura!) $10.95
They also offer bento boxes at reasonable prices. This is the tempura bento for $10.95.
