AAA Inspector Notes
This popular eatery has a distinct neighborhood vibe about it and can become quite boisterous at times. The Japanese animation murals adorning the walls are quite interesting. Check out the raw bar menu, which includes Hawaiian big-eye tuna, Totten Inlet oysters, Santa Barbara sea urchin and a vast selection of sushi rolls. The robata-grilled meats also are popular. With endless options, you can craft a meal out of a variety of small plates. Expect fast-paced service and a laid-back atmosphere. This inspector particularly enjoys the selection of vegetable side dishes, including the baby zucchini in a yuzu-truffle sauce and the red miso Japanese eggplant.
