Furaibo- Little Tokyo

  • t

Last night I went out to dinner with my friends at Furaibo. The food was very good. It's Japanese bar food that goes well with icy (sp?) cold sake....

Each dish is small, reminding me of tapas.

We had:

Beef tataki, served with minced garlic, spicy daikon, and onions on the side.... (I ate a whole plate of this myself because I really love rare beef)

fried eggplant, not breaded, just fried japanese eggplant with bonita flakes on top and minced ginger

asparagus stir fried with bacon

fried oysters, breaded, served with mayonnaise

chicken wings, extra spicy and has a sprinking of sesame seeds on top (they have other parts of the chicken but I like the way they cook the wings here the best because all that skin crisps up quite nicely)

beef tongue, lightly grilled

agedashi tofu

wafu steak, comes on top of a bed of cabbage on a sizzling teppan plate, topped with daikon and dipping sauce

daikon soboro, daikon slow cooked so very soft, with pork sauce

grilled smelt fish

It is on 2nd Street, one block east of Alameda.

    Which group were you? We were 2 girls sitting at the bar near the door. Were you the group coming in when we left or were you already there?

      I think my friend and I talked to you. We were waiting for our table because we had 5 people.

        That is so funny, I was talking to a fellow Chowhound and didn't know it. Yeah, that was us. I'll definitely try some of your recs next time we go.
