Usagi is a Japanese comfort food restaurant. This type of Japanese cuisine (yoshuku) is Western-influenced, so it features dishes like steak and spaghetti.
Some dishes that may peak your interest are their uni (sea urchin) risotto, mentaiko (spicy cod roe) pasta, and hamburger steak.
My absolute favorite dish to get here is omurice with menchi katsu and hayashi sauce. The omurice is an omelette filled with chicken rice, and menchi katsu is a breaded and deep-fried beef cutlet. Omelettes and deep-fried foods, as you may already know, come from Western cuisine. You can choose what sauce to top off the dish with, but I always go with hayashi. Hayashi is made up of beef, onions, and mushrooms in a thick demi-glace that contains red wine and tomato sauce. Demi-glace is a brown sauce popular in French cooking.
I recommend getting their green tea parfait to finish off your meal! Green tea ice cream is layered with red bean, corn flakes, whipped cream, and then topped off with a cookie to form a nice dessert that you’ll want whether or not it’s hot outside 🙂
I loved the interior of this place. The brick walls, high ceilings, cool artwork, and lighting gave off a hip and laidback vibe.
They have over 40 beers on tap, served in different temperatures according to the brew. I especially liked how they feature a lots of Belgians, which are my fave! If you like sours, they even have a sour room downstairs.
They also offer snacks, appetizers, entrees, and dessert (you can pass on their risotto though). Next time, I want to try their hot dogs because they have their own sausage company!
If you’re a beer lover, I definitely recommend coming here with a group of friends to try their vast beer selection!!
