Soma Sushi Editor’s Pick
Chef Gabe Medina brings his Filipino traditions to the Asian food fest at the five-year-old Soma Sushi, which was first opened by celebrity chef Robert Gadsby. Medina has pulled the restaurant out of its Washington Ave. torpor by kicking the sushi bar into high gear and creating the city’s most exciting ramen menu. There are several traditional ramen presentations and some unusual variations like seafood ramen with shellfish and black bean ramen garnished with the scrambled egg sushi called tamago; all the ramens are outstanding. A recent well-received weekly special was Texas ramen, featuring juicy slices of brisket and smoked pork belly with kimchi.
