Yama-chans... had a nice ring to it. Owner must have named the shop after himself. Anyways I had a small Bonenkai (year end dinner) with some J-Italians... There are groups of Japanese in this country that instead of studying English in the US they go off to Italian Universities and language schools~. A motley crew mixing up Japanese, English and Italian.
2 Type of beer... plus I had to get the Bottle Beer
And this bottled Asahi was massive... plus it was warm! Shoulda started with an ice cold draft.
Thats Michi... Japanese who sings Italian Opera. She's auditioning for Julliard in March!!
Wish her the very very best http://www.juilliard.edu/
When you drink with guys Sake will always appear... finished off 3 bottles.
Rei-Hi-Le... you know what that means!? Its Manta Ray!
Oh gawd... bean sprouts with sausage.
Chicken with peppery seasoning
Everything pretty much was boring Izakaya food except for the house special. Miso seasoned juicy chicken wings! This was not toooo bad :)
Japanese love cucumbers
Ice Cream Janken Game... if you win you get an extra from the super kind waitress.
Overall would I go back... Hmm... I think if I had some foreign guests then for sure because everything on the menu was pictured and they could have a Japanese Izakaya experience. Oh, Japanese foodies gave it a very lowly 3.00pts on Tabelog.
