Unlike most Japanese restaurants in LA, this tranquil eatery specialises in what it calls "mountain cuisine." Bowls of hearty udon soup are available, as is sushi, but why not try one of the rice bowls with burdock or lotus root and mushrooms? A peaceful venue in the middle of a hectic nightlife district.
