Our meal began with stinging nettle kimchi, and never lost momentum.

Come along with Nosh as we explore East Bay restaurants in photographs. This week we focus on FuseBOX, at 2311A Magnolia St. in Oakland (Click to see the menu.) We recommend going “omakase” — let your server determine the course of your meal. If you’ve tried the spots we feature, please let us know about your experience in the comments below. Read more about FuseBOX on Nosh.
