Kurobuta sausage teppan yaki – Izakaya Takonoki

Kurobuta sausage teppan yaki - Izakaya Takonoki
Grilled pork sausage. 4 pcs $4.50
Izakaya Takonoki, Honolulu HI

This was not the pork sausage I expected when I ordered this. I’ve had kurobuta sausage at other restaurants and they were always more substantial and meaty. The tiny sausages we received are the kind you find vacuum-packed at Asian markets looking pink and squishy. I didn’t enjoy this, and the mustard didn’t help very much.

This tasted good, but was overpriced for what you got. It was flavorful but nothing special.

This was ok, nothing special. I actually would have preferred it if the salad came tossed and with smaller pieces of fresh tofu.
