Recommendations for Japanese - non sushi?

wanderlust21 | Apr 8, 2014 08:29 AM

Hounds, I'm visiting SF and looking for a few recommendations.

First, is a Japanese restaurant that is not limited to sushi. One member of my party is allergic to fish, though she can eat shellfish. (The rest of us love sushi, but will go for a separate meal to a sushi specialist.) I searched around and the latest thread on this seems to be from 2009. House made tofu a plus.

Second, is a Korean restaurant with particularly good banchan variety. Seafood, Jjige (stew), pork neck Jjige a plus. We are considering On Dal2, Jun Won, Ham Ji Park, or Soban - any comment on which would be your go-to is welcomed.

We are staying close to the Westside but are willing to drive anywhere in the central LA area. Cost is not an issue. Thanks.

Soban Restaurant,
Ham Ji Park
