Best Japanese spots for things other than sushi

Where are the very best places to go for homestyle dishes, izakaya, etc...??

The places could have sushi, as well. I like sushi and am interested in the best sushi places, also, but I would really like to find places who are doing harder to find japanese dishes that are amazing.

I already love and go to Minako and Ippuku...

thanks.

    2. Muracci's in FiDi is very popular for its Japanese curry...it is quite good, though I think some of the hype comes from people who have never had Japanese curry previously.

      1. And of course, Oyaji

        1. Norikonoko in Berkeley is great for home-style cooked dishes.

          I love the fried noodles at Sapporo-ya. I'm not sure what that dish is called.

            Ah, Norikonoko is one of the Berkeley Japanese restaurants that I enjoy.

            Yakisoba? Is that what you were thinking of?

            1. Kiss Seafood near Japantown. Reservations are a must, only 12 seats.
