Najin K./Yelp

Tucked away upstairs on King Street next door to its better-known sister, Fort St. George, this small International District Izakaya (Japanese style gastropub) has daily specials, a drink menu that encompasses various Japanese beers, saki and shochu, and a rather great, not super expensive menu that touches on the expected (ramen, udon and soba soups, tempura, bento box combos) as well as left-field dishes. The butter breaded chicken with kewpie mayo is delicious, and it’s worth waiting for the genton, a pork cutlet that’s stuffed with cheese, breaded, and deep fried into a ball of sheer goodness spilling out its gooey melted insides with the first perfect cut.
