Time Out says

Hanpen cheese, please! That’s what you'll be telling people about after your first visit to this Sawtelle standby. Although torino kara-age ($5) fried chicken is the official favorite here, the hanpen cheese ($5.50)—fried fishcakes stuffed with oozing cheese and shiso leaf—is a delicious oddity that you’ll see on every table.  Also be sure to try the fried halibut ($12.50), a whole fish in which the filleted body is deep-fried into a sort of bowl that is heaped with pieces of itself. It sounds like the work of cannibals, but is really almost elegant.
