Tucked a half-level below the bustle of Yorkville, Koko Share Bar attracts well-heeled diners devouring trendy sharing plates. On the menu of Japanese and Korean-inspired dishes, the latter are more deftly executed, like a flash-fried appetizer of soft tofu that takes on the mildly nutty flavour of its crisp perilla wrapper. A textured salad brings mesclun greens, creamy, pungent goat cheese and crispy pear slathered in intense kimchee; together, the sweet fruit balances the mouth-numbing heat from the pickle. A plate of galbi overflows with thinly sliced beef short rib brushed with a slightly caramelized soy sauce. Sushi portions are generous, but the fish tastes like it spent too much time in the cooler. The drinks list offers inventive cocktails like a herbaceous, refreshing caesar made with cucumber-infused soju.
