Café Japengo Review

Shiny black surfaces and bamboo trees accent the interior of this Pacific Rim restaurant that serves Asian-inspired cuisine with many North and South American touches. The grilled beef yakitori and the char siu duck salad are guaranteed to wake up your taste buds. There's also a selection of grilled, wood-roasted, and wok-fried entrées—try the braised short ribs with risotto or the miso butterfish. The sushi is always fresh, and many regard this as the liveliest sushi bar in town. Service can be slow, but the pace in the bar, crowded with young locals on the make, is fast and energetic. If you savor quiet, avoid weekend evenings.
