What a shame that so many people pass through this restaurant just to go to Angel's Share, the bar attached, and never stop for "Japanese tapas." The menu is large and certainly hit-or-miss, but favorites are of the weird-textured variety, like sea cucumber in ponzu sauce, natto (fermented soybeans) with okra, and raw tuna in mountain potato. But other winners are less challenging, like grilled rice balls, the outsides of which taste like salty popcorn, and deep fried squid legs (with mayo for dipping), and garlicky spicy tuna (in a bowl, not a roll). There is also a page of yakitori options (little skewered snacks with sweet sauce coating them) and Korean dishes, too.
