I went to Honda Ya in Little Tokyo the other week. Here are highlights and lowlights. I'll be back, and I'm glad this place opened.
Sesame chicken was uninspiring
Room is quite ventilated given the grill and such - but the AC is pumping FULL BLAST - with no area for escape (save for the tatami room). This is a mino nit, and given the heat wave currently, not a big deal.
Huge space - complete with tatami room options.
Huge menu (which might be a bad thing?) - including soba/udon and ramen selections (though I didn't try it)
Chicken skin as a regular item on the menu (did you hear that Haru U La La? it's a menu STAPLE!)
I'll repeat myself here - CHICKEN SKIN IS A REGULAR ITEM ON THE MENU.
