Seattle Weekly's Description

Downtown's Japonessa is not really a Japanese/Spanish fusion restaurant. It is absolutely a Japanese restaurant, with its heavy reliance on noodles, seaweed, sushi, sashimi, and the artful preparation of everything that swims. There are hints of a Spanish tradition dotted here and there throughout the long menu. And on top of that, a kind of nouvelle Latino. And French. Non-Japanese Pacific Rim. Mediterranean. Even South American influence. The take-away is confusing, but delicious.

    Seattle crunch roll amazing $4.50 during hh. House wines on hh are pinot Gris and cab. Eat like king neptune on a budget.

    Tampura Brie Cheese & the special sauce that comes with it is the perfect melt in your mouth combo!

  • Matt W. on 08/23/10

    Sink your teeth in the super bad boy roll during happy hour. Not a sushi fan? The wicked wings are just as the name implies - wicked.

    Try the Raindrop! It's a secret item not on the menu and it's delicious! Your taste buds will thank you.
