Foursquare Tips

  • Chotto promises the experience of a genuine izakaya-a Japanese post-work/pre-karaoke rallying point for filling up on beer, hard-to-find sake,small plates & lots of fried & skewered Japanese pub grub
  • The spicy ramen is a must have. The broth itself is so tasty i'd drink a bowl without the awesome noodles and toppings. The pork is so smokey and tender! The bacon mochi was strange and delish too!
  • This is the best Japanese Restaurant in the city. Sit at the bar Friday-Sunday and indulge yourself in food and culture with Kasu and the gang!
  • Bacon mochi is not overrated! Get it.
  • Tontorro (pork cheek) is the shit
  • Good izakaya is hard to come by in SF - this place is way underrated. Get the hatake sarada
  • Bacon mochi is incredibly underwhelming and gets stuck in your teeth. The spicy ramen broth is good. I like that they use rice bran oil for frying
  • Where do I begin? Don't miss out on the mochi bacon! Everything else is stellar!!
  • Spicy ramen!
  • The glass on the right is the soda glass they charge refills on. Pathetic.
  • Don't order a coke. The glasses are so small and with ice it's about a half of a can and THEY CHARGE FOR REFILLS. Otherwise the food is amazing.
  • The Bacon Mochi is out of this world! A must order!! Our group ordered one to try & quickly ordered a 2nd dish before we even finished the 1st.
  • Any of the hamachi dishes are amazing, as is the mixed sampler skewer plate, and the sweet potato donuts with sesame ice cream and caramel (OMG!). Love this place!
  • Everything is amazing... I'll post more tips...but the hamachi, avocheezu, kaki, maguro yukke are a great way to start!
  • Get the mebachi maguro is amazing. Melts like butter in your mouth!
  • Must try the bacon mochi and tempura mushroom!
  • Ramen, Bacon Mooch, Sashimi, Pork Belly
  • The tuna poke was delicious and very fresh! The Spicy ramen was spicy, the egg was PERFECT, but the noodles and broth were just "ok". The Duck skewers had an excellent flavor to them!
  • Beautiful place. Bacon mochi was delicious, ramen was disappointing. The slices of pork were very tough (it had to be cooked to the point it's very soft), a bit burned. Maybe because it's Sun night.
  • Bacon wrapped mochi, hamachi crudo, uni hotate, kara age. Get those.
