Edomasa Restaurant Review

: To quell a late-night hankering for uni or udon, this unpretentious gem of a Japanese restaurant is the only place to go in Santa Barbara. That’s not to say, however, that dining here should be confined to after-hours. Located in a nondescript building in a quiet section of town, the restaurant has half the flash of its more popular downtown siblings, which lends to its charm. The menu is heavy on familiar favorites such as teriyaki, sukiyaki and tempura. You won’t find much in the way of experimental fusion concoctions, but a number of specialty rolls bolster the sushi list, and the extensive amount of appetizers provides an opportunity to sample new flavors. For a particularly rich and indulgent dish, try the Una-Ju---a thick filet of freshwater eel covered in sweet sauce and served over a bed of rice. And if you’re in the mood for something besides mochi for dessert, consider mitsumame. They serve the Japanese style fruit cocktail alone or with ice cream. Service at Edomasa is friendly and unaffected, but can be somewhat inefficient on occasion.
