Anyone looking for unusual ethnic mash-ups, American style, will find them at Uoki, a combination Korean/Japanese restaurant and sushi bar with a menu that covers virtually all of the Asian comfort foods. Here you can make a meal of tekka maki, a bowl of excellent, thick and spicy green-curry soup with potatoes and carrots, and sang choo sam with marinated beef, onions and rice. But the best item is that most basic of Korean offerings, the bulgogi: sweetly marinated shreds of ribeye, cooked quickly in a hot wok and served beside fluffy rice.
