Passed by Ippuku after the Cal game today just as they were opening up so I thought I would pop in. Just a 5-minute wait as a solo diner - score!

With a nice cold Asahi, I enjoyed the waiter-recommended tofu skin, skewered chicken hearts, chicken thigh oysters and chicken thighs with leeks, ramen, and a comped order of corn fritters.

The skewered chicken hearts were tender, moist, and full of grill flavor, and easily the best hearts I have had anywhere- hands down. The fritters were also wonderful (crunchy, slightly sweet from the corn, greaseless, and salty in a good way). The simple shredded chicken ramen in a thick shoyu broth and the yakitori chicken with leeks were also top notch. Only the chicken thigh oysters disappointed a bit as they were chewier than expected.

I need to get back soon to try more of the menu!
