I was supposed to meet my partner the next block at Casa Enrique, but for some reason they mistook a Japanese restaurant for a Mexican restaurant and ended up here. They found it weird that there were no lines, whereas I went to Casa Enrique and encountered a line. Because Casa Enrique doesn’t take walk-ins and the line was getting rather long, we decided to just eat here, and to my surprise, it was a good substitute.

The people behind My Name is Han opened a cool Yakitori place. On a Saturday, it was easy to get a table for 2. The zuke maguro is marinated tuna sashimi with fresh jalapeno sauce. The tuna was actually pretty good, and the jalapeno sauce has a nice kick to it. For the yakitoris: The skirt with shishito was pretty good. There wasn’t anything super special about it, but I really liked the flavor of the coal they use here.
