I had been keeping this place a secret, but what the hell, passionate chowhounders unite! If you love the art of robatayaki (grilled skewers), you will find heaven at this non-descript homage to Japanese skewers in Culver City (on south side of Washington Blvd., just east of Glencoe, 13362 Washington Blvd, (310) 306-7010. Favorite skewers - asparagus maki, ginko nuts, chicken hearts, potato-stuffed mushrooms, shiso leaf, garlic-marinated beef. Save room for the MOCHA PUDDING. It is out of this world. Reservations required.
