Loved their kurobota sausages and Japanese inspired garnishings. Wagyu sausages very tasty too. Would go again to try their whole range.

Our first time to try this Japanese Hot Dog. They are different...lots of varieties. Great service. Normally this is a busy place so be there early. We walked by this place one day and it was jam-packed so we went the next day.

I tried their hotdog finally, after seeing them having branches everywhere. But to be quite honest, I don’t wanna pay more than $1/one serve. Tastes just okay, they were not yucky, but not good at all. There’re bunch of Japanese foods out there, and most...More
