If you haven’t yet figured out that strip malls can hide a multitude of culinary treasures, get yourself over to Sushi Gallery in Madison Heights. Run by chef Jae Lee and family, this hybrid sushi and Korean restaurant boasts not just good food, but one of the friendliest and most hospitable chefs in town. Chef Lee loves to chat with customers about his homeland, food, culture and whatever else might come up, and he’s always offering little extras, like a taste of soju or a couple extra gyoza. Lee is also more than accommodating when it comes to ordering off-menu; if he has the ingredients, he’s happy to make you whatever strikes your fancy.
