The idea of Japanese tapas, or small plates, is a cute idea for a restaurant and it is located in a colorful neighborhood that makes it fun to visit. We started with the special entrée of the night which was mussels and fries and their special vegetable of seasonal fiddle neck ferns. The mussels were plump and the broth was flavorful. Fried food can taste light and crispy when it is done right, but that night this was not the case with the fries or the fiddle neck ferns. We asked for a dipping sauce for the fries and were served their house-made wasabi mayo. It was delicious and worth the 50 cents it cost, but interesting that they serve it with their burger and fries at no charge. The chicken thigh Yakitori was moist pieces of meat, but was absent of any Japanese seasoning, leaving it unremarkable. The shining star of the meal was the goat curry. It had many chunks of tender, moist, flavorful goat meat and potato in a perfectly spiced red curry sauce on rice. We enjoyed this with cold sake and it was a perfect pairing! Their bar menu is extensive, featuring local spirits, wines and beers and changes seasonally. We would go back for the goat curry and just be sure not to order any of their fried offerings. Parking is an issue in that it is street only and limited by being in a neighborhood.
