I finally got there tonight and dragged along my wife and kids who brightened when there was something more than a hole in the wall behind the front door. Shumai started us off, and we then went to Yakitori : chicken thigh with green onion, chicken breast, okra, shiitake mushrooms, and finally pork. My son had beef ramen, my daughter fried tofu, and I countered with salmon sashimi. Everything was superior. Each taste was individual; the seasoning subtle and superb with mostly the correct amount of salt and pepper. The salmon sashimi was more tender than any cooked salmon I've had outside the northwest while being a huge portion for a heck of a lot less
Than what they charge in Seattle where they do you a favor to let you partake of the local catch. Not only is this the best Yakitori I've had in so cal, but it's the best Japanese food I've eaten in San Diego. And since every dish was amazing down to the ladies desert choice of fried mochi, it might be the best restaurant of any kind north of Tijuana and south of LA.
