OC Weekly's Description

The only purely Japanese restaurant on the peninsula, it's nothing along the lines of Kappo Suzumaru or any of Takashi Abe's outposts-but don't think the owners have watered down their cuisine for gaijins, either. Here exist robust udons-five of them-ranging from a simple su to a tempura udon in
which fried meets scalding in a union of fatty heaven. Forget cereal, and
instead try a true breakfast bowl: oyakodon, egg, chicken and green onions
mixed, then placed over rice (they also sell one made with katsu). It seems
like such a simple dish, but this version is worthy of being hawked at a
Tokyo train station.
