Tender pork ribs, premium pork, bbq pork. $10.75
Ajisen Ramen, San Francisco CA
Omg, this was SO salty! I liked the flavors I guess, but it was very difficult to taste much of anything past the salt. The meat was also dry. I definitely wouldn’t order this again.
Breaded deep-fried pork cutlet over rice. Spicy curry with sausage topping. $8.75
JapaCurry, San Francisco CA
This was great! The pork katsu was perfectly fried, piping hot, and not even greasy. The curry sauce was very flavorful, and the sausage was fun to eat.
With brown rice and hot curry. $9.45
Muracci’s Japanese Curry & Grill, San Francisco CA
I’m loving Muracci’s for a delicious lunch. It gets pretty busy in there so I always try to get there early to beat the crowds. The hot curry is my favorite and the beef slices were still tender.
Brown rice chips topped with tuna picante, melted pepper jack cheese, avocado, green onion, nori strips, sriracha aioli. $8
Sushirrito, San Francisco CA
This is now one of my new favorite lunch items because it’s cheap and super delicious! The tuna picante is tasty and I love the sriracha aioli. Noms!

Savory pancake, kimchee, scallion, cabbage, bonito, oko sauce, kewpie mayo. $14
Namu Gaji, San Francisco CA
This was delicious, but it was SO hot and I was SO hungry that I kept burning the roof of my mouth. I’ve never had okonomiyaki before and I thought it was great. I loved all the different textures and flavors.

Soboro (ginger-honey braised ground beef), unagi (broiled fresh water eel with sweet bbq sauce), and salmon (grilled Scottish salmon with shio koji sauce). Organic mixed greens, edamame, pickles. $10.11
Onigilly, San Francisco CA
I liked the fillings of this rice bowl, but it just wasn’t enough food to fill me up for lunch especially for costing more than ten bucks. It was mostly rice and salad. I thought the unagi and soboro tasted great though.

Ichi Sushi + Ni Bar, San Francisco CA
Wow, the nigiri served during my omakase were, for the most part, pretty amazing! The fish was fresh and melted in my mouth. The rice on my first offering was dry though and the cut of fish was gristly and tough to chew. My kampachi was just plain gross and I actually couldn’t chew through the piece. Some of the fish were also unevenly cut, but besides that they tended to be great. The ocean trout was especially good and literally melted in my mouth!
I tried labeling most of the nigiri below, but I’m not sure how accurate my memory was with the identifications. Please correct me if I’m wrong with any of them.
They also brought me the wrong beer, but didn’t charge me for their mistake so I got a free glass of beer out of it. I appreciated that they took responsibility for their mistake and comped the beer. Good job!
