Best (Under The Radar) Japanese: Toronto

biggreenmatt | Jan 13, 202012:37 PM     17

I love Sushi Kaji. Love Yasu. Love Japango, love Miku, love all the ramen joints (even though they're sooo 2012), love Manpuku. I even love the silly faux-izakayas that crop up all over the city like shiitakes after a rainstorm.

My point is that I love Japanese cooking, my birthday's coming up, and the missus is treating to a night out on the town.

Looking for under the radar Japanese restaurants that may or may not be in the downtown core (anywhere in the 416 is completely fine, though we live off the Danforth and would, everything else being equal, prefer subwayable/Uberable locations) that need to be tried but due to location or whatever, aren't on most people's radar.

Let's take Hashimoto as read, since we've already tried to make a reservation but they're booked up on the dates we're looking for. Thanks in advance!
