Both the atmosphere—the J-pop and the view of downtown—and the karaage of Fort St. George in the International District are magical. At the end of the restaurant is a full bar that’s patronized by older adults, and adjacent to the entrance is a dining section that’s patronized by younger adults—some on dates, others reading comic books that they’ve brought or borrowed from the restaurant’s small but packed comic book library. The menu is defined by Japanese interpretations of American dishes: spaghetti, hamburgers, and the beloved karaage, Japanese-style fried chicken.
