    1. bacon-wrapped asparagus. 2. bacon-wrapped scallops. 3. deep-fried anything. 4. oh yeah, their sashimi is pretty good, too. lamb chops are also a fave, as is the small-but-tasty robata selection.

    the little soy sauce jars at each table are filled with tamari (aka wheat-free soy sauce)! i saw them refilling the jars with it so i asked. bonus points for gluten-sensitivity-friendliness.
