Katsuni is tonkatsu (deep fried pork cutlet) lightly simmered in soy sauce and sweet mirin with onion, topped with half cooked egg.
Sukiyaki is a stew that consists of beef, noodles, and vegetables served hot pot style.
The interior of the restaurant has a modern feel and the bathroom is very clean (sorry, don’t have any pictures). The food is good, but the portions are small because it is tapas style. The only thing odd is that they play Spanish music in this otherwise very Japanese restaurant! Perhaps to emphasize the tapas-styleness? No se ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
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).

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday last year and I’ve finally sat myself down to write about it. I loved the ambience of this place! It was relaxed, but romantic and elegant at the same time.

Lighting is dim, but there were only a couple people in the restaurant besides us that night so I felt okay to use flash heh. They also have a pretty patio outside where a few others were sitting. (more…)
