  • Domo
    Press Box: Domo To call Domo “intimate” is a bit of an understatement—the restaurant houses one wraparound counter at which patrons sit. But the cozy confines haven’t stopped diners from stopping by for acclaimed sushi rolls and fresh nigiri. Read on to discover what makes this Hayes Valley hideaway so special: “The secret's out about this tiny, unembellished foodie paradise. And it's no surprise: über fresh sushi at affordable prices plus long waits to boot make for a killer combo.” – Michelin Guide “Those who prefer a crunch will love the firecracker balls, with the spicy tuna rolls breaded, fried and drizzled with spicy mayo and eel sauce. They're decadent but delicious - we expected to have leftovers but we finished wanting more.” – SFGate “Aside from ingredient-driven sushi basics, Domo boasts razzle-dazzle maki like the Sexy Mama Roll (broiled asparagus, tobiko-topped salmon, yuzu cucumber) and Ankimo: monkfish liver w/ ponzu and scallions.” – Thrillist “In a multicultural vein, Domo offers a small selection of crudos. Tastes rather than full courses, they're presented in porcelain soup ladles and might include spicy tuna with sriracha, sesame oil, cilantro, and avocado; and uni . . . presented with avocado, wasabi, soy sauce, and sea salt.” – San Francisco Bay Guardian

  • Otoro Sushi
    Five Things to Know About Otoro Sushi Born and raised in Japan, head chef Fukuji Sugai trained for years before settling in San Francisco. As a result, Sugai-San’s restaurant, Otoro, represents a unique “fusion of California and Japanese cuisine.” Read on for more about this popular Hayes Valley spot: The restaurant’s name is also its best ingredient. Otoro refers to the fatty portion of the tuna belly that’s widely considered the highest-quality tuna available. Though it may not be in season, otoro tops the sushi, sashimi, and specialty-roll sections of the menu. They serve more than just raw fish. A whole section of the menu is devoted to Japanese-style tapas dishes, which range from tempura prawns to grilled squid. Veggie options abound, too, including maki rolls like the Vegetarian Caterpillar—cucumber and Japanese pickle topped with avocado. In Japanese, “Cheers!” is Kanpai! Remember it, because you might find plenty of opportunities to toast thanks to the diverse drink menu. Along with wine and Sapporo beer, the list features three categories of sake, from the easily drinkable junmai to the full-flavored daiginjo. Lunch runs from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Lunch items include hot entrees such as beef, chicken, or salmon teriyaki; bowls of rice topped with curry chicken or fresh tuna; and classic servings of udon or miso soup. It’s probably best to get a reservation. So said one Mapplr user, who noted it was even “packed on a rainy Sunday night.”

  • Izakaya Roku
    In the tradition of Japanese izakayas—sake shops with tapas-style menus—Izakaya Roku serves an extensive menu of small plates. The menu opens with simple snacks, such as edamame and garlic toast, before introducing seared fish and five kinds of carpaccio. There's tempura and ramen, of course, but also stews with everything from pork belly to sake-steamed clams. The menu even includes surprising takes on American drinking food such as a pair of pizzas, although they're neither covered in pepperoni or delivered to your table by car—instead, they're topped with mushrooms and cod-roe sauce or miso chicken. The traditional izakaya in Japan is a cozy, neighborly place, and Izakaya Roku would fit right in among them if it ever decided to pack up and take a vacation. "Now, this is an izakaya," the San Francisco Chronicle's Janny Hu noted approvingly, advising guests to "order up and just enjoy what comes to the table." Neon signs, amber lighting, and handsome wood paneling fill the corner shop. Signs showing the day's specials flutter over the bar, hastily painted onto white paper as though the chefs' imaginations were working faster than their hands could move.
