Unsophisticated favorites?

"Unsophisticated" is perhaps not the right word, but I'm hosting a friend later this month who loves good food, but not terribly complex and definitely not pretentious. Ethnic cuisine is fair game. Places I’m thinking she’ll like are Shake Shack, Ippudo, Katsu-Hama, Motorino, the Dutch, Shopsin’s. I might be underestimating my friend a bit; on the other hand, I’ve watched her order too much chicken at nice restaurants over the years :)
