Ichiban Japanese Restaurant Restaurant Review

: You won’t find the latest tricked-up rolls and fusion dishes at Ichiban, but you can count on quality fish in the sashimi and old-school sushi. Traditional cooked fare such as tempura, teriyaki and the chicken udon are also good, as are a couple of the Korean items like the galbi (marinated short ribs). Skip the meal combos and order à la carte --- you won’t miss the deep-fried sides and basic salad. Drink selections focus on beer and warm and cold sakés. Desserts are the typical green tea and mochi ice cream, plus a pound cake filled with green tea ice cream and fried tempura-style.
