I'll be there over the holidays and am looking for recs for a couple of specific items. I did a search, but a lot of the posts seem to be from 2007 or so.

High on the priority list is sushi - real sushi, not a place that has a bunch of mayonnaise-y rolls. But, accommodating to children and not overpriced is a plus. I've seen recs for Sushi Roku, but it seems a bit fancier than what I'm looking for. For reference, in SF, we usually go to Oyaji, an izakaya in the outer richmond, and one or two small places in Japantown.

Is there any good ramen - hand-pulled - in the area?

And finally, vietnamese - bun, pho, and maybe a crepe or two?

Are there any can't miss items in the immediate area, particularly for authentic asian food? We will go to Ding Tai Fung definitely.

Thanks in advance!
