ANN ARBOR, MI – Armed with bento boxes, sushi, and affordable prices, Jane Kim is ready to feed the students.
Jane Kim, who founded Totoro Restaurant in Ann Arbor before selling it in 2008, recently opened Plate Sushi and Chicken. The restaurant, tucked away at 1133 Broadway Street and jointly owned by Jane Kim and Esther Kim, aims to provide affordable, quality meals to the Ann Arbor student population.
The restaurant, which opened on December 10, serves a mix of Asian and American fare, including chicken wings, bento boxes, and sushi.
“Our goal is the American-Asian style of fusion,” said Jane Kim. “… I love American food, mixed Asian food.”
Fusions on the menu include kimchi fries and chicken wings with glazes like soy garlic, sweet and spicy, and honey butter.
Plate’s menu also includes a variety of bento boxes, a meal served on a compartmentalized plate with an entrée and sides that Jane Kim compared to American’s brown bag lunch.
“Americans have brown bag [lunches], “she said.” In Asia, we have a bento box. “
The bento boxes, which come in lunch and dinner sizes, include options like teriyaki chicken, veggie, sushi, and popcorn chicken. Each box comes with shrimp or vegetable tempura and a sushi roll.
Jane Kim said she wants prices to be affordable for students in the area. Lunch bento boxes range from $ 12 to $ 14, with the sushi option running at $ 16. Sushi rolls are $ 3 to $ 12 and noodle dishes are $ 11 to $ 15.
“Everywhere now it’s so expensive,” he said. “… I want to make a good meal for the students.”
Plate Sushi and Chicken, at 1133 Broadway St., is open from 11 am to 9 pm Monday through Saturday. Find him online or by phone at 734-369-6127
