One of the unique things about this place is their ordering system: you order and pay when you first walk in using one of the three iPads they have set up! You then seat yourselves and somehow they know what your order is (we didn’t have to show the waitress our receipt/number). A con about this system is that to tip with card, the choices for the amount are preset ($2, $4, or $6). To tip using card, there is a separate iPad by the door on your way out. They also have vegan-friendly ramen and sell merchandise such as shirts.
I love this place so much I try to come here every time I’m in the bay.
Everything is good, but here are some must-gets!!
- fried garlic
- grilled okra
- grilled leeks

Tsujita LA is known as “one of the best” places to get ramen in Los Angeles. Their most popular dish is tsukemen, a type of Japanese ramen that consists of dipping the noodles into a separate bowl of soup.
This review is solely on their tsukemen. All I can say is that it does not live up to the hype because despite the rave reviews, I was quite disappointed in this place. (more…)
Looking for a good place to get ramen?
Go to Himawari! The service is nice and the prices are very reasonable. Their ramen menu is big so you’re bound to find something you’ll like! Once you find a ramen you like, you choose your soup flavor: soy, salt, or miso. The regular toppings are sliced roasted pork, bamboo stems, and green onion, but you can add more toppings for an additional price.
Not a fan of ramen? Himawari also offers a bunch of cooked appetizers, salads, fried rice, rice bowls, and sushi rolls! The place is small though and it is quite popular, so be prepared to wait!

On this day, we arrived so late that they ran out of fish to serve omakase. Nonetheless, we had a very good experience with the fish they had left. (more…)
What food comes to your mind when you think about the Tenderloin?
Thai? Southern? Vietnamese?
Probably not Japanese right?
Surprisingly, there actually is a good Japanese place in the Tenderloin! Say hello to Sanraku~ (more…)
For those of you who don’t know, I am a HUGE Yelp addict. Reading reviews for all sorts of places, looking at pictures of food, and searching for hidden gems is one of my hobbies. I currently have 920 bookmarks.. yes, I might have a slight problem LOL. Every few months, I go through all of them to delete ones that don’t interest me anymore, but I end up finding other places so they keep adding up more and more. As much as I love to read other people’s reviews though, I rarely ever write one on the site myself. Today, I looked at my drafts for the first time in a while and found this one that I had basically completed but never uploaded:
The first time I ever tried beef tongue was here at Gochi. This braised beef tongue was served with mashed potato butter gravy. Fast forward a little over two years to this day, and their beef tongue is still the only one I have actually enjoyed because it tasted like regular meat (with none of the chewiness that comes with tongue).
