Come to think about it, my first going to CôDung was rather unpromising: Me, not too big a fan of sushi in the first place, only going because I was overruled in a doodle survey by my friends, and I remember how I saw the neon green decor and thought that it rather appealed to my 18-year-old self, and while my 18-year-old self surely appreciated a good cocktail, didn't care too much about good dining.

But as unpromising as my going there was, as revelating was my being there, and any doubt I might have had quickly blown away upon my first tasting the Fuji Roll, a fried sushi roll epic in taste. This is what I believe to be made of the world's happiest tuna, gently massaged in a perfectly tempered bath of slightly soy sauce-flavored marinade, to be afterwards carefully bed into its breading. This is what I believe a tuna burger in Futurama would taste like, only that the softly cooked, luscious inside is so perfectly contrasted and complemented by its crunchy outside. This sushi - turns you into a sushi believer.

So apart from the ravishingly delicious fried sushi rolls, CôDung is home to (other) sushi and Pan-Asian cuisine (and yes, I had to google "Pan-Asian"), serving a fully flavored Tom Kha Gai soup (perfect hangover food), many so-worth-gowing-there-sushi creations of their own (like "Sweet Love"), and (worth mentioning) many of their dishes with a decoratively arranged salad on the side that is topped with highly addictive tomatoes (which must be either marinated, or grown on a magical patch).

With a couple of outside tables on the pavement, two floors (downstairs the colorful bar, upstairs a couple of small origami cranes hanging inbetween the paper lamps from the ceiling) and a terrace so highly popular in the summer that I have to yet make it to, CôDung quickly became one of my favorite places to spend any lunch break with colleagues or dinner date with an old friend, and with some really good cocktails on the menu - also appeals to a side of my 18-year-old self that I surely stayed loyal to.
