Daichan Restaurant Review

: About a dozen tables crowd a dining room cluttered with Japanese art and artifacts --- traditional paintings, elaborate kites, fountains, statues, masks, kimonos and parasols --- and menu descriptions are accompanied by childlike illustrations. The specialty here is Japanese pub food, or as they call it, "Japanese soul food." You’ll find potato and meat croquettes, chicken cutlet, baby squid salad, gyoza, ahi burgers, fried chicken, and even a spaghetti salad that is better than it sounds. Guests also fill up on soba noodles, tempura and sashimi, paired with Japanese beer or saké at this endearing neighborhood joint.
