The Press Box: Ippuku
At Ippuku, Chef Christian Geideman strives for authenticity in every aspect of the dining experience—from the wood-beamed booths reminiscent of a traditional izakaya to the impressive selection of shochu and sake. Read on to find out more about this popular destination for Japanese small plates:
“The warm staff is happy to introduce novices to the savory pleasures of casual izakaya-style dining: chicken gizzard skewers, bacon-wrapped mochi, corn fritters, soft-cooked eggs in dashi broth. Three preparations of fresh handmade soba are available on Monday and Tuesday nights.”— The New York Times
“When you push aside the curtain at the entrance, it's like time-travel to Japan; the shochu bar in front leads back to a world of reclaimed wood, rustic open tatami rooms and the smell of quail, bacon and mochi grilling in the kitchen.”— The San Francisco Chronicle
“It feels like you could be in Tokyo. In fact, friends who spent a lot of time there say that no place in the Bay Area channels the vibe as well as Ippuku.”— Inside Scoop SF
“Clearly, Geideman takes the trend of whole-beast cooking to heart. The dish that’s garnered most attention on the menu is chicken tartare. That’s raw chicken, topped with daikon sprouts, Korean chili paste, and a raw egg to the uninitiated...”— Nosh
