More authentic menu.
Small restaurant. Slow service but they're friendly. Pricier than most and portions are smaller.

It's an izakaya, so it has lots of sake and small plates (but there are entrees you can order too). The majority of the small plates are grilled or fried, but there are other types of food to get there as well. It was the first place I tried hamachi sashimi (since tuna and salmon were always my favorites), and I fell in love with it. Their onigiris are good, and I really like the one filled with salmon roe. I also quite like their tomato and cheese rolls that you dip in some salt. I just tried their garlic edamame, which is edamame that's heated up and covered in this garlic paste that I squeezed some lemon juice on, and it was fantabulous! The only thing to watch out for is that the place is pretty small, so there have been times I've had to wait awhile. Make reservations if you want to plan ahead, but seats at the bar do free up regularly.

Primarily a sake bar; the food is passable for an izakaya but the menu is very small.
