Ethel's Grill Restaurant Review

: Ethel's Grill is small, seating about two dozen diners, so expect waits during peak times. Favorite dishes include homemade miso soup, crunchy mochiko chicken, garlic pork chops, and a signature appetizer combining ahi tataki with sesame-shoyu sauce. Take note that the restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch, and doesn't accept credit cards.
