LA Weekly's Description

Orris, sometimes described as an Asian “tapas bar,'' is a marriage between California casual and the Japanese izakaya, a great place to drop in for a beaker of daiginjo sake and a plate or two of smoked scallops garnished with salmon roe, seared tuna with sweet onion marmalade, or even what amounts to lamb sashimi - food to wash down with sake, not with a glass of Bierzo. Its location, convenient to the Nuart and the manga-intensive shopping strip anchored by the Giant Robot complex, couldn't be better, and the small wine list, as well as the sake list, is swell. And although chef Hideo Yamashiro isn't cooking the fried catfish with ponzu that made him famous at his South Pasadena restaurant Shiro, the fried seafood is awfully good, especially the tempura shrimp dusted with house-made curry powder and served with a moist little mound of Okinawan sea salt.

    This place has been on some people's radar for a while, but I finally just tried it. It's a very unassuming storefront (it's not the most ambient restaurant - so try to sit on the enclosed patio out front for the best vibe/acoustics), but the food makes up for it. They don't take reservations and won't seat you until your entire party is there, but are happy to serve you drinks... More >>

    we know someone who eats there once a week - it is that good

    Order the shrimp mousse ravioli and ask for extra bread to dip in the ridiculous sauce. (It's tacky to lick the bowl)

    Order the salmon croquettes. They=awesome.

    Don't miss the grilled Caesar
