Yoshimatsu Restaurant Review: The two dining rooms at this unique venue are as different as night and day. Tucked in the back is a quiet and elegant space dedicated to a full boat of sushi. While we like it, the front room is more our speed with its simple wooden booths, oodles of Japanese knickknacks and lively music overhead. Plus, you can get some of the sushi here as well. There are many choices, but since the emphasis at Yoshimatsu is on healthful ingredients, don’t be afraid to go a little crazy. Consider starters of soft shell crab, egg rolls, squid salad, kimchi, gyoza, kara-age, yakitori and more. Next comes ramen, simple or fancy. For entrées, opt for yakisoba (beef, chicken or pork) with a full ration of fresh stir-fried vegetables, or the katsu curry (pork, chicken) requisitely crispy and rich. Bento plates and rice bowls are on the menu as well. Wash it all down with a cold Japanese beer.
