    Pork belly, beef flap meet and the bacon wrapped quail eggs are some of the best yakitori pieces. For a serious treat though, get the ribeye steak with garlic sauce. It's an explosion of amazing.

    beef flap meat goes great with the grilled onions. you have to ask at time of order to have them served at the same time, as the onions take much longer to prepare.

    The standard ramen doesn't come with much chashu. Consider upgrading. Also, the gyoza are pretty tiny.
