On the Bridge

Although the Bay Area has a lot of Japanese restaurants, most of them are similar--not identical.

This very unique place, a cafe-type restaurant, located "above" a sreet, serves food we can never find in most of states in this nation.

For the size of its kitchen and the number of its chefs, a variety of items can be ordered--not sushi.

First time visitors, who do not know about American-type restaurants located in Japan, should do some homework. Read travel books to Tokyo, and watch modern Japanese cinemas--not samurai genre.

People who do can not decide may a "higawari deishoku"--daily changed lunch/dinner--that is "today's pick" or "chef's recomendation" in California's English.

An article about this Japantown restaurant was in yesterday's the San Francisco Examiner.
