The executive chefs here (both veterans of New York’s Nobu) love introducing diners to seasonal items—firefly squid, red barracuda—not typically found on American sushi menus. Some items aren’t even on the menu so if you’re feeling daring, simply take a seat at the bar (like Steve Jobs was known to do) and tell them.
Mikado serves traditional Japanese fare with several seating options. There's a sushi bar up front with a view of the big screen TV, tables along the wall, a tatami room that seats 8 and an upstairs room that seats 15. The lunch bento special is popular and comes with a huge amount of food, including a California roll, chic
Think of it as Japanese tapas—the skewers here are served individually, which means its easy to order a bunch and share. Choose from options like steak, chicken heart, pork cheek, and okra, each grilled over oak-wood, imported from Japan. For some added variety, don’t skip the non-skewered (but still shareable) organic fried chicken.
Over the last five years, the chefs at Barracuda Japanese Restaurant have continually tinkered with their sushi, teriyaki, and noodle dishes, customizing the menu to fit each Barracuda location’s neighborhood and clientele. Using fresh fish and fruit sourced locally and sustainably whenever possible, the team crafts more than a dozen specialty rolls, including the Japanese Cowboy Roll, which matches crabmeat with mango, avocado, and thinly sliced Kobe beef. Staples such as chicken teriyaki rest side by side with more intricately prepared eats including pan-seared rib eye with mashed potatoes. Lit from underneath, the dining room’s dim orange walls surround potted plants and wooden tables that can accommodate groups of all sizes.

Inspired by the incredible flavors served at traditional Japanese festivals, Happi House was founded on the belief that dining out should be happy and festive. Happi House?s founders thought that quick-service restaurants had become predictable and boring, so they set out to expand and upgrade fast food options by offering fresh meals to order and one-of-a-kind teriyaki sauces.
The first Happi House restaurant opened in San Jose?s historic Japantown district in 1976, where its fresh take on fast food was an instant sensation. Over the years, Happi House has grown its distinctive menu while maintaining a commitment to using fresh ingredients delivered daily and food that's grilled to order?never held under heat lamps or served up from a steam table.
Today, Happi House has six locations throughout the Silicon Valley. Bay Area folks can pop into the casual eatery for a tasty bite or grab a jumbo-sized Happi Pak with enough chicken salad, rice, and flame broiled teriyaki to feed the whole gang at home. Must-try items include bone-in teriyaki chicken, Asian chicken salad, and homemade teriyaki sauces in original and spicy flavors, which are available by the bottle.
