Our biggest adventure there was eating in a restaurant with no English on the menu and no English speaking staff. I ended up with three skewers. One had chicken meat and was tasty. One had cartilage and the other was chicken skin. At least the saki was good. It also makes a great story.
I fell in love with Okonomiyaki, or Japanese pancakes. I'm constantly looking for a reason to return to Japan.
Hi Nick. When I was the Japanese Food site editor here, I posted an article about Okonomiyaki. Here it is:Okonomiyaki
We just went to a yakitori restaurant here. Apparently there are hundreds in Japan but in CA, I found only this one. It just opened. The chicken skin skewer surprised us. It was delicious.
