Wow, that was quick. Didn't the place just open last week?


Hi ST - Long time no hear. Yeah, I think they just opened on Wednesday, but the Missus was craving yakitori so I thought, why not?


buta shiso looks good!


Oh we will be there very soon.


It was Kat!

Hi YY - Yes, by all means, check them out!

Hey Bro!

Appreciate you trolling for grub.

This is place is so small, I hope it does not become another asian hipster joint with long waits
and curt staff.

La Playita ruled...

Fat Killer

I appreciate your pioneering spirit brohan!

I was told my a friend of mine who was a very successful proprietor that you wait a minimum of 6 weeks, and longer if you can, before trying a new place. They never ever have the kinks worked out.

He was spot on.

One real stinker when it opened and even now is Hinotez. What a POS.


Yes and no FK. Yakyudori was good from day one, plus they had this property and were planning their strategy when it was Curry Rice as was Tadokoro and Kokoro. Santouka needed some time, however, they showed promise, that's the main thing. The food is usually not the problem, it's the service and systems that are shakey. I will usually make multiple visits or do a follow-up a couple of weeks/months later. I like Hinotez's breakfast, reminds me of when I was a kid.

Yeh, Curry Rice was a head scratcher...

Not only is the food at Hinotez utterly mediocre, after all this time the service is garbage.

Keep up the good work!

Check out Comun Kitchen downtown..will float your boat.

Things are heating up in the Clairemont/kearny Mesa area bro...

Any weekend plans for a bit of grub trolling?


Nice "grub" (wut!)...everything you had looked good, even the gummy chicken skin skewer.


This place is going to be really busy CC.... they are that good.
