Hello there, how was your weekend? Mine was filled with lots of fun in the city with Hayden and George – of course, that involved lots of eating, strolling, playing and shopping! :) Last night, we ended our weekend at Izakaya Yuzuki for dinner. It was actually my first time there and thought it was really delicious. Everything were prepped delicately and tasted super fresh. And their service was so warm, attentive and friendly. I can’t say there’s a lot of good Izakaya in the city so this one has now became a top on my list. The only thing I didn’t get to try much were their exotic dishes like kobe beef tataki and chawan-mushi with uni. Since they use the freshest ingredients and source organically and locally, they always have specialty items that are often not on their regular menu too. So for sure, I’ll be back for those dishes once I’m done with this pregnancy thing. :) Have you been there, my SF friends? How did you like it?
Izakaya Yuzuki 598 Guerrero Street, SF, Mission.
