Denden Café Asiana Opens On Benefit

denden Finally! This corner (next to Geoff’s) has been empty for so long. The newest addition to the neighborhood — open about two weeks now — is Denden Café Asiana, a Japanese/Korean cafe with espresso bar and green tea. This may seem like a strange combination food-wise — I don’t think anybody will be ordering a mochaccino with their kimchi pancakes — but it might keep a steady stream of customers coming in during the day. And when you are inside it doesn’t seem odd.

The interior is nicely dim with gray-black ceiling, industrial light fixtures, and walls down to the brick. There are also sidewalk tables.

The menu includes tonkatsu, udon, hot pot bulgogi, maki, soba, bibimbap, and something they call Den Den monkey balls. Vegetarians should find plenty to eat. It’s just nice to have something there.
