Friday night, KL and I decided to head to one of our favorite dinner/supper places, Honda-ya in Tustin for some grub. It's hard to find a places that serves good food and stays open late in Orange County (Honda-ya's open till 1am).
I love the atmosphere - service's great and it's unpretentious. I love the slanted roof and the knick-knacks they litter the place with! Sometimes all you want is great food and beer to go with the conversation and in this aspect, Honda-ya delivers. Their grill selection is spectacular and one of the must try is their grilled bacon scallops - it's heaven on a stick! Unfortunately I wasn't feeling too well so there's no picture of any grilled items this time.
What I got instead was yellowtail jalapeno (this is something that KL and I get every time, love the taste of sashimi with the yuzu sauce), spider roll, tako yaki (my favorite Japanese street food ever!) and chashu ramen. Honda-ya also serves complimentary pickled cucumbers as appetizers which I find to be light and refreshing. At this point, KL and I have pretty much made it our personal challenge to go through every item on the Honda-ya menu ;)
