Chung Dam: Duluth, GA, USA
This was actually our third location for lunch after church a week or so ago, and we picked it only because we didn’t want to drive to yet another location. My friend and I weren’t too hungry so this seemed to be fairly light since we were both going to get sushi or something of the like. I ordered the sushi plate which consisted of a california roll and then a chef selection of sushi pieces. I believe the total came out to be about $20+ which wasn’t too bad given the amount of sushi that was on the plate.
- great quantity: almost too filling actually for someone who didn’t have much of an appetite. However, since sushi doesn’t keep well, I tried my best to finish it all.
- very generous portions: there was more than just a lot of pieces of sushi, the sushi pieces themselves were very filling and large pieces of fish used.
- decent for the suburbs: I’m not expecting a 3-star michelin experience here or even a 1-star experience for that matter. The fish wasn’t melt-in-your-mouth but really, you can’t bash this place too much. The atmosphere was very quiet, almost a bit too dark though if you ask me. It doesn’t have that secure and private atmosphere of a omakase feel where the chef is serving you and just you so the darkness just kind of makes it feel a bit “heavy”. But all in all, it’s not bad. I’d still prefer Haru Ichiban which is just down the road (and honestly, we would have gone there except it was closed on Sundays).
If you’re in the Duluth H-Mart center and you want some sushi that is a step up from that served in packets at the food court, definitely take a short walk over to Chung Dam. You can find them here:
