Izakaya Honda Ya - Quick Review

jaydee | Sep 3, 200705:08 PM     2

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.

Lowlights -
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.

Highlights
Huge space - complete with tatami room options.
Attentive service
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.

Izakaya Honda-Ya
