Village Yokocho

Crowds from the quasi-hidden but not-so-secret Angel’s Share bar next door squeeze in here for Japanese comfort food, served in a perpetually hopping room that’s decorated to look like an outdoor eatery: Clouds drift overhead on a blue-painted sky; red lanterns dangle from a faux roof. The cheap prices allow you and your pitcher-downing buddies to order several of the tapalike dishes. Shredded daikon is dressed with sweet-and-sour ume shiso dressing; bonito flakes dance atop a bowl of yakisoba. But the best beer-ballast value: grill-it-yourself Korean barbecue with large platters of meat.

Place is very reminiscent of Japanese izakayas and restaurants. Love all of the food and atmosphere. Not to mention cooks and wait staff that are actually Japanese. My favorite is the Kaisen don but I also really love the yakitori and okonomiyaki. Wash it down with an Asahi or Kirin and you're good to go!
