Simply put, Irvine has seen nothing like it ever. It's a bar, late-night hangout, and an all-purpose Japanese restaurant operating with a menu so voluminous it rivals the classifieds. Everything sizzles with ambition; and none more so than their list of ishiyaki. These are dishes that owe their name to their stoneware bowls and plates, heated hot enough to brand. Best not to get drunk on their cocktails before ordering one.
Tokyo Table – Finally, a place in Orange County that serves past 8pm As someone who was fortunate enough to actually eat a plethora of food in Tokyo, I realized long ago that Japanese cuisine is a lot more than sushi. I also realized, when moving to Orange County, that it’s like going on a scavenger hunt to find a place that serves food past 8pm, let alone food that is a little more culturally diverse! Alas, there is hope, (and Saketini’s - yes, I do mean martini’s made with Sake). Tokyo Table is a little gem located across from the Irvine Marketplace that has married the spectrum of authentic and innovative Japanese food with American taste buds. With an impressive, and mildly overwhelming, menu, there are over 150 different choices from sweet potato fries, bacon-wrapped asparagus, sushi, sashimi, curry rice, udon, and even burgers. The idea is to share and enjoy. The décor is a strange toss up of retro and modern, and if you feel like dancing, they play house/dance music throughout. Overall, it’s a nice and distinct break from the norm. Is the best food ever? No, but it’s good for kids, Happy Hour, AND tasty when you’re hungry for more than a late night In N’Out run.
