Even though I’ve come been here several times for many years, I’ve never reviewed this place on my blog because they don’t serve ramen, soba, udon, or sushi.
However, they do serve yakitori (see picture – $3.80), so I decided to try it on this trip. I also ordered a Hiya yakko (cold tofu – $2.50), Ochazuke (rice in broth – $5.75), and Tsukimi tororo (grind yam with raw egg – $4.50). As you can tell, the prices are reasonable in this part of town and the hot green tea is free.
This place is is very an authentic Japanese Izakaya style restaurant that locals would go to in Japan. Nothing here is spectacular, and some dishes are marginal, but everything is authentic and the place is very casual. They also have branches in Gardena and Puente Hills so I guess there are people that like it.
This is a great place to come with a bunch of friends and get drinks along with some eats.
