The mostly Japanese clientele and menus written in Japanese are a good sign. At this tiny cafe, filled with twentysomethings, you can go beyond the usual teriyaki-house fare.

Start by sharing fresh spicy tuna maki ($4.25) and crab shu mai ($4.25). Entrées are huge and come with a bowl of mesclun salad drizzled with delicious soy dressing. Fried pork katsu-style ($10.50) with Japanese potato salad is enough for two. Ditto the fried chicken katsu ($11.45). The Japanese hamburger and bowls of ramen get high marks, too.
