Since a move around the corner onto First Avenue in 2004, the old Sandobe, a tiny dive with twice as much sushi as other joints for half the price, is scarcely recognizable. The new space is long and bright, with three high-ceilinged dining areas and a square, neon-color light embedded in every table. The new menu includes both Japanese and Korean dishes. The enormous, crabmeat-filled House Special sushi rolls are crowned with any combination of yellowtail, salmon, tuna, eel and avocado. Sashimi can be ordered Korean-style, tossed with salty fish roe and hot sauce over shredded radish, for a refreshing take on the standard Japanese preparation. The other Korean choices, including a half-dozen flavors of jeon, or pancake, and rice-based bibimbob, are less appealing; the plentiful and inexpensive sushi are still the main act.
