Do you like sake?
This week my friend took me out for dessert and drinks to a restaurant on St. Marks. St. Marks is a street in Manhattan filled with a variety of shops and stores, but it also houses a number of very cute, affordable, and delicious Asian restaurants. We've been trying to go to each of them at least once!
The thing about restaurants in New York is that they're often small, crowded, and claustrophobic. I've come to have very low expectations of space, when it comes to trying new restaurants, which is fine most of the time. But that's pretty much what I was expecting when my friend took me to Jebon Noodle, at 15 St. Marks.
I was incredibly wrong, needless to say. Enter Jebon and you're greeted by the bar and a few tables at the front of the restaurant, but as you venture further back the room opens up into a clean, spacious space.
But that's not why we were there! We had gone to Jebon specifically because they offer the sake slush.
What's a sake slush?
It's basically a blended ice drink with sake in it. Jebon offers mango, passion fruit, peach, strawberry, green apple, and lychee flavors.
For only $6 apiece, it's a lot to drink! The taste is incredible, too. I ordered the lychee slush and my friend ordered the mango slush. Sometimes lychee flavored foods taste somewhat artificial, but this sake slush was crisp, fresh, and delicious.
And if you're looking for dessert, their green tea ice cream and creme brulee are solid choices.
Definitely check out Jebon Noodle! It's a wonderful space with good quality food and drinks.
Have you ever had a sake slush before? Where?
