First up, we have some complimentary salad...it's the salad that you will live to love or hate in Korea--basically cabbage drenched in mayonnaise dressing. It's a simple coleslaw and I love it. You will find this salad served with donkatsu (pork cutlet) dishes everywhere.
Here, we have California's Philadelphia roll in the background and their California roll in the front. Both rolls were delicious and actually tasted like sushi and not just rice, which is a big bonus:
Devante ordered this roll, which I can't remember the name of. It was covered in little crispy deep fried bits of some sort (what an awesome description, hey?) and then drizzled with two kinds of special sauce. Okay, what I just wrote might not sound appetizing so I'll let the picture speak for itself:
Here is my other roll which I absolutely loved. A smoked salmon covered roll with crab, tuna, and avocado on the inside. It was seriously an intake of awesome as there was also a sweet and creamy sauce to dip it in. I am definitely going back to eat this roll again!
I saw this view approximately eight times...mmm...raw tuna...
California has locations all over Seoul. Our sushi meal cost about 24,000w ($26US) and we were stuffed. The location we went to was in Omokgyo at the Megabox (one floor down). The other one that I know of is in Hongdae. There are many more out there, it's just a matter of finding them. Ask around and you'll get many answers.
Anyways, here's a shout out to The O.C. ...Phantom Planet's song, California. It was an entertaining (only when Ryan would fight random people) show for the first season and a bit, but after that it sort of self destructed. RIP:
