Tips

  • The okonomiyaki at Obento-ya tops that of Moto-I and Midori's - better presentation, more tang and zip.
  • This sushi spot is a fave of students looking to stretch their dollar but who don't want to get shortchanged on quality or choices. Their extensive menu offers a variety from sushi to ramen noodles.
  • In summer, ask for courtyard seating.
  • Tonjiru!!!! Get it.
  • On Mpls St Paul's list of Insider Eats for small-plate bar snacks and drinks
  • Good news: the fantastic House Ramen with Ginger Pork is now available every day (not just Monday!).
  • Sake-salmon bento is one of my all-time favorite lunches. Try it!
  • The Black Sesame Ice-Cream is amazing!
  • Get the sashimi bento!!
  • Chicken bento box for lunch, YUM!
  • The Obento box is an unbeatable deal for lunch!
  • The Monday special is ramen, and it's worth the trip-- but you can't get it to go, so plan to eat in.
  • The Wednesday special is unbeatable.
  • Love the Saba Mackerel bento box. Maki or the sushi rolls are nicely done. Try the California rolls or the spicy tuna roll. The fish on the sushi is always fresh. One of the best unagi's in town.
  • Check out the bidet in the bathroom!
  • One of my favorites. The bento combos are reasonably priced and they're one of the only places in the Twin Cities where there's good takoyaki! go during happy hour to make the bill a bit cheaper.
  • Best authentic Japanese food in the Twin Cities.
  • Best sushi in the twin cities.
  • Some of the worst ramen I have ever eaten (karaka tan-tan men). The soup was thin and watery. No dashi or miso taste; faintest hint of chili. Blandest ramen noodles on Earth. @UniDeli, save me!
  • One of the best bento boxes I've ever had. Small joint with great flavours.
