🥗 Our Shrimp Louie Salad is refreshing and full of delicious flavor! The house greens are tossed in a spicy citrus dressing, and served with cherry tomatoes, English cucumber, avocado, a 7 minute egg, juicy grilled shrimp, green onion and furikake. Available only during the month of May, so enjoy it while you can! ...

🍜 The Signature Smoked Ramen is our best selling ramen, and we believe it’s in large part because of the extra steps we take to make it different!
🍖The pork belly starts with the typical chashu process, but we go even further by cold smoking it, which really brings this meat flavor to another level. Our house-made black garlic oil adds an additional layer of smokiness to the dish. We create it by frying garlic chips to 3 levels of doneness - light, regular, and charred - and then ground them up and diffuse them into the oil.

🇯🇵 Donburi is a Japanese rice-bowl dish consisting of fish, meat, vegetables or other ingredients simmered together and served over rice. Karaage is Japanese style fried chicken.

🌧 April showers bring new bar hours! Our cocktail bar will now be open during lunch on Saturdays, making our full bar menu available starting at 11am.
🪻 Be sure to try this month’s exclusive new cocktail, April Showers! A riff off the classic Aviation, we add our house-made lavender ube syrup and egg whites to bring forward notes of spring and a frothy texture.
🍸 Ube is a southeast Asian purple yam that has a slightly nutty flavor with a hint of vanilla, and it pairs very well with the lavender syrup. It also gives this cocktail its vibrant purple color!
