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!
  • the bacon mochi is delicious. garlic fried rice is very good, too
  • The spicy miso is solid but by no means exceptional. Chewey noodles, good chashu and egg but the broth is a little on the boring side
  • Dont come here for ramen. Do come if youre looking for a great chicken/pork skewer, and a great selection of sake. Staff was nice!
  • Must try the bacon mochi and tempura mushroom!
  • Ramen, Bacon Mooch, Sashimi, Pork Belly
