This is the hidden gem of California. I am lucky to live in the area so I been able to try almost everything on the menu. My goal was to find a dish that I would not like but I have not found one. This restaurant is a Japanese tapas so the dishes are like samplers which is great. They have the traditional sushi which is amazing along the with an oyster bar. I do like the tapas plates the best-- some of the must try is the Kalbi tacos(Korean bulgogi beef in a taco), kakuni buns (pork belly in chashu bun), rock shrimp lettuce cups ( shrimp with soba noodles on top with a roasted walnut in a lettuce cup), and the aji slider (I usually ask for the lunch aji burger which is a whole burger) with the most amazing spicy fries.
On Sunday for brunch, they have a mini Hawaiian menu but all you need to say is loco moco. It is crazy good. It is a teriyaki aji burger over fried rice with an egg and gravy on top. So ono...
The chef is not scared to create anything you want. I asked for fried poke which is better than any in Honolulu.
The chocolate cake is a must.
The servers and service is outstanding.
