OK hounds, news flash, the Martians have just landed in West De Moines Iowa and they have taken Shawn Johnson hostage. Just kidding. Better yet there is a new, extremely interesting venue in town called Wa Dining Okan. In the location of the old Yakitori K1, next to Nijiya market this Kozara Ryori style eatery is something I never thought I would see in sunny old San Diego. No signage, a menu predomently written in Japanese, I mean, this place is foodie cool. I am no expert on esoteric Japanese cuisine, but Okan is surely worth your time. For more information check out Kirk K's blog. (Don't miss the eggplant special, it made me weep with joy).
