Ethel's Grill Restaurant Review

: Ethel's Grill only seats about two dozen diners, so expect waits during peak times. This hole-in-the-wall spot is a locals' favorite for its crunchy mochiko chicken, garlic pork chops, homemade miso soup, and signature appetizer of ahi tataki with sesame-shoyu sauce. Take note that the restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch, and doesn't accept credit cards.
