Thanks to dailygluttony and other posters for suggesting this place. A few buddies and I were there the other night - all had good and inexpensive Japanese comfort food. Chicken karaage was exceptional. Yaki-soba was excellent, and would probably be even better next time I'm drunk. Service is on point - and the mix of people eating (old Japanese people, downtown hipsters, USC students) makes the place cooler than your everyday diner.
Anyone know if I can get that mayo-ey like dressing I see on Japanese cabbage salads at a Muruaki or some other store? That stuff is great.
