HELP! What time do I have to arrive @ IZAYOI (Little Tokyo) to try their lunchbox??
Hi Izayoi fans,
I have heard that Izayoi's lunchbox specials are really good. What time should I arrive at Izayoi to get one? (I heard that they only make 20 a day.)
Also, is it mostly composed of sashimi, or does it include izakaya-type items as well?
Every time I have tried to get the lunch special they are out.
I think the izakaya type dishes are excellent. Ive had great seafood croquettes, tofu made in-house with sesame paste, grilled sardines with roe and fried squid tentacles. I think they fry items with a light touch and do it really well. Ive asked for fried shrimp heads after ordering sweet shrimp nigiri and they obliged us. The menu is more extensive at dinner time. Good beer on tap, including Kirin Ichiban pitchers and a nice selection of sake.
