Hours: Monday–Thursday, 11:00 a.m.–11:00 p.m.; Friday, 11:00 a.m.–3:00 a.m.; Saturday, 5:00 p.m.–3:00 a.m.; Sunday, 5:00–11:00 p.m.
Fare: Japanese and Japanese fusion
Vibe: Casual and relaxed early on. Gets louder and more like an elbow-to-elbow scene as the night progresses
Seating: No reservations, 8–10 tables, plus 6 seats at the yakitori bar
Must try: Pork and kimchi; portobello mushroom; anything with bacon; “Bacon and Egg”; Uni Green Tea Soba Noodles
Need to know: It’s the Gaslamp, so parking can be a challenge. Pricing on the yakitori menu is for two skewers; however, I’ve been able to order single skewers of everything. A seven-skewer combination called the “Seven Samurai” is $21.
