It's super casual and a borderline noisy dive, but the food is OUTSTANDING!! It's creative, fresh, not too spicy Thai fare that's just yummy! It's great when you can go to a restaurant and leave not only full, but every dish was superb! If you...More

First time here, and have been looking forward to their signature lunch dish called Okonomiyaki. This is a Japanese inspired cabbage pancake offered with either egg, porky candy or bacon. I opted for pork candy, which was a finely slivered/shaved silver dollar sized dollop of...More
