Amazing, completely unexpected Japanese.
After driving around Bergen county, looking for a place to eat with a friend from high school, we stopped at this place in the middle of Suburbia White America. We went in, not knowing what to expect. Turns out, without an ounce of doubt, that it is one of the best Japanese places I have ever been to, from coast-to-coast. I would say that the quality and the taste of Wasabi is comparable to Sushi of Gari on the Eastside, and this neighborhood Japanese restaurant in the Village called Cotan. My favorite appetizer is the Agedashi Tofu, which is four pieces of lightly fried tofu, in a nice soup. For the entree, I have an eel cucumber roll, a salmon skin roll, a shrimp tempura roll, and a piece of inari sushi, all really really amazing. I also have a diet coke, and my bill comes out to 21 dollars. It's a shame that New Yorkers aren't accessible to a place this good, with prices this great in the city. Nonetheless, if you're sick of the pretentious New York restaurant scene, and waiting for a table, it's worth a good 40-minute drive (half the price of the city, twice as good). It's also a good place to stuff-up before spending your day shopping and hauling at Ikea.
