Rondo, the newest restaurant from the team behind Suika and Tamari Bar, specializes in donburi (rice topped with raw fish), sushi, bento boxes filled with things like pork katsu, and mazemen noodle bowls. We’re fans of the creamy seafood noodle with roe, but were less impressed with ice-cold seared albacore in the donburi as well as their oversized maki that come with huge pieces of fish on top of each sushi roll. If you’re in the mood for noodles, you should come here for lunch.
