By STEPANIE DILWORTH
Daily Staff Reporter
East Liberty Street has two
new, tasty additions only one block
apart: Asian restaurant Kuroshio
and Mexican restaurant tsalita.
Kuroshio, an Asian fusion res-
taurant named after the Ruru-
shio Current off the coast of
Taiwan, is owned by University
alum Alan Wang and his par-
ents, Kenneth Wang and Grace
Chen. tt was built in place of the
former Champion Mouse restau-
rant, which closed last year.
Wang said he drew inspi-
ration from other, acclaimed
Asian restaurants when he
designed Kuroshio, and wants
to offer customers a unique
dining experience. Upon enter-
ing the restaurant, customers
are greeted by themes of water
currents such as a wall foun-
tain, textured wave walls and
tranquil background music.
"I was looking at a lot of fine
dining in Asian restaurants in
East Asia, and a lot of it had
a very simple, minimalistic
design," Wang said. "I was
really drawn to that design and
used it as my inspiration."
Wang said Kuroshio is more
of a special-events place.
The majority of Kuroshio's
food has Japanese influences
in addition to a blend of Kore-
an, Thai and American food.
The restaurant specializes in
seafood, sashimi, or raw, sushi-
grade fish; and sushi.
Wang and Kuroshio's chef,
Venice Lee, said they wanted
to serve mostly Japanese food'
because the cuisine is inher-
ently healthy. In addition, Lee
is most familiar with Japanese
food after undergoing training
with a Japanese chef in Hong
Kong when he was 14 years old.
Head server Gil Tabon said
his favorite aspects of working
at Kuroshio so far are his fellow
staff members and the experi-
ence, as well as the unique dishes
the restaurant offers.
"I love the family orientation
at Kuroshio," Tabon said. "They
really take pride in not only their
food, but who they work with."
Tabon said the quality of ser-
vice is an essential aspect of the
functioning of the restaurant.
"Anticipation is key," he said.
"We always try to anticipate the
guests' needs. You shouldn't have
to ask for more water because it
should aireadybe there."
Kuroshio is currently hiring
and will only be open for din-
ner until it is fully staffed.
Similarly, Isalita will tempo-
rarily only be open for dinner.
Adam Baru, owner of Isalita,
said he decided to. open the
and bar right next door to his
Italian restaurant, Mani Oste-
cia, which opened in 2011.
Baru said the choice of loca-
tion has proven convenient.
"The restaurants being so
close together made this an
easy decision," Baru said. "I
could oversee both restaurants
and my chef Brenden (McCall),
can oversee both as well."
Baru said it was important to
him that the neighboring restau-
rants were varied. While Mani
Osteria is designed with earth
tones and a rustic look, Isalita
is made up of wooden elements
and offers bursts of colors. It also
showcases copper aspects and
has personal touches.
"I wanted it very much to be
two different dining experienc-
es," Baru said. "I want (Isalita)
to feel more vibrant, like Mexico;
a go there every year with my
family. It's not just about bright
colors and cactus, the flaws add
realness to the space. It feels.
youthful and vibrant and even a
little bit more edgy."
Isalita's bartender, Jeff Wes-
terman, said the bar highlights
traditional Mexican drinks and
offers house specialties such
as the "coyacon," which comes
from the word "coyote."
"We've created a whole menu
with our interpretations of Mexi-
can drinks," Westerman said.
"Obviously highlighting tequila
and mezcal, we really wanted to
highlight that on the menu,.it's not
something you'll find around here:'
"(Baru) provides us with a
wonderful working environ-
ment," he added. "He is very
supportive of all of his employ-
ees. He makes sure that this
stays a fun, fresh place to work."
Baru said Chef Brenden
McCall's dishes - such as flau-
tas, tuna tostados, hamachi and
forest mushroom tacos - were
inspired by trips to Mexico. The
restaurant will primarily serve
small plates reminiscent of
Mexican tapas and will always
involve salt, lime and heat.
A customer, Jerry Robins,
said he plans to dine at the res-
taurant in the future.
"It. was a very pleasant expe-
dieuce," Robins said. "The pric-
es are hefty but the service is
good and we enjoyed the food."
Another customer, Kelan
Hlavaty said she had a good
experience at Isalita.
"I would definitely say that*
this is gourmet Mexican food,"
said Hlavaty. "I thought they
could have done a little more
work on the drinks, though. I
thought that they were good,
but for the price they could
have been stiffer."
