Yoshimatsu Restaurant Review

: This busy restaurant offers two types of dining: a quiet, refined sushi room and the more raucous, eclectically decorated front area that serves a large and varied menu. We prefer the latter, where you’ll find bento boxes galore, noodle dishes, udon, soba and ramen soups, curries and sushi and sashimi. Appetizers run from simple edamame to the more elaborate hamachi kama. And try as we might to order “something different this time” we stick with the katsu pork, be it a bento plate or a donburi bowl. One item that you don’t find everywhere is the okonomiyaki, a huge, savory pancake filled with all sorts of vegetables and your choice of protein and decorated with drizzles of oyster sauce and mayo. Saké is available both hot and cold, but we like the ice cold beer served in frosty glasses to keep the flavor fresh.
