The Cutting Board
Seattle, WA 98108
Seattle Weekly's Description
The Cutting Board offers a non-fussy approach to Japanese cuisine. A walk-up counter to place your order, a self-serve water station, and just five wooden tables make up the dining area. J-Pop plays softly overhead, interrupted every few minutes by clanking pots and cooks yammering to one another in Japanese. It's like a cafeteria, but cozier. The Cutting Board serves the sort of food a mother makes lovingly for her children when they get home from school: yakisoba, udon, and best of all, big bowls of beef curry accompanied by croquettes, tonkatsu (deep-fried pork), and menchi katsu (deep-fried hamburger). Wash down your hearty meal with a Kirin beer, and it's guaranteed you'll have the best nap of your life when you get home.
Tips from foursquare
The chirashi here is faaantastic.
You order at the counter at this casual restaurant, with the cook bringing the food to your table. Look for some interesting Western-influence dishes (yoshoku), including a top-notch katsu curry.
Chirashi bowl is fantastic and especially considering the low price.
