Rockmeisha Izakaya

foodwhisperer | Sep 26, 201305:57 AM

Rockmeisha is such a friendly Japanese restaurant with great food.
The shrimp mentai dumplings are homemade and delicious. The mentai potato salad is great. Yes they use mucho mentaiko, it is common in the region the chef is from. Pork also. The Tonsoku ( pig trotter or pig toes) is my favorite dish and I don't know anywhere to get this. Other good dishes are the grilled chicken wings, pork ribs, octopus pancake etc. they also have a few non Japanese dishes like shrimp bun, and buffalo wings.
The juke box has lots of oldies from Elvis, to Doo Wop, to Rolling Stones.
Sometimes they have Sumo wrestling or 1960's wrestling on the tv. Great place. If you haven't checked it out , Please do so. It was completely empty last night, and that worries me because I love this place and want it to stay around for a long time.
