This charming Japanese diner's been a Little Tokyo staple since 1972—and it looks the part. As if frozen in time, daily specials get added to a white pegboard near the front of the restaurant, while the unpretentious menu covers comforting territory with decades-plus dishes like curry udon, shrimp tempura, straightforward donburi and okonomi combo plates. Tuck away into one of the wooden booths for more privacy, or sidle up to the bar and watch street views of Tokyo play out on a large flat-screen TV.
