This handsomely decorated Japanese fast-food outlet describes itself as "sushi & bowl." The sushi part features the most obvious combinations, which are as good as prefab sushi can get. While soups like beef with noodles suffer from a boring stock, the over-rice dishes are much tastier. Try the katsudon, a fried pork cutlet mired in a scallion-laced omelet; bibimbap don, an adaptation of a mix-it-yourself Korean favorite; or, the una don, a giant sauce-smeared eel fillet. All are delicious and cheaper than you'd find in the East Village.
