Aloha Tokyo welcomes mix of Asian cuisines


January 24, 2008|By Karen Nitkin | Karen Nitkin,Special to The Sun

Though its name might lead you to think otherwise, Aloha Tokyo does not serve Hawaiian food. The Aloha refers to the look of this cute neighborhood restaurant, which is done up like a Hawaiian tiki bar, with a bar made of bamboo, wicker stools and fake-flower leis adding bursts of sunny color.

In fact, the restaurant, which opened in Locust Point in September, serves Japanese and Korean food, sometimes fusing the two cuisines in unusual ways. Owner Seonpil Kim said he grew up in Korea and then moved to Tokyo, where he owned a similar restaurant.
