Surah Restaurant Now Open

Chirashi

Something truly wonderful happens when East meets East just northwest of Philadelphia! The newly-opened Surah in Spring House, PA, defines itself as Japanese, complete with traditional and contemporary Japanese specialties, prepared with flair, flavor, and finesse. But while Executive Chef Tae Yeon Kim makes a yummy teriyaki and a terrific tempura — and sushi chef Hitoshi Jin Saito  offers dozens of utterly fresh sushi and sashimi delights — Tae also honors his Korean roots with a selection of dishes he learned from his mother, who ran a very popular restaurant back home. Like galbi (short ribs marinated in a most delectable sauce), or bulgogi (prime cuts of beef marinated for 24 hours to ensure perfect savory flavors). The food is divine, and the center table created for communal dining is a must see!

Check out Surah Restaurant located at 1121 N. Bethlehem Pike, Spring House PA. Surah is open Monday through Sunday, 11 am to 10 pm. Call 267-470-4310 for reservations. For more information, visit www.surahpa.com and be sure to like Surah on Facebook.
