Japanese Pub Life: Yakuza Lounge - Portland

Fennel + Orange Salad


Kale, Shallot and Edamame Salad


Dungeness Crab Roll


Really Spicy Roll


This sums of my Wordless Wednesday post. Would I go back to Yakuza on my own free will? Never in this town as it left my wallet and stomach a little too empty. Still, it was fun to try something new.

While I have been to a couple of cool Izakayas, at the majority I have been to I have felt like the butt of a joke, as if they were saying "Ha, we're serving fried Costco dumplings at a 2000% markup and calling it izakaya and look, they're all loving it!"

Not saying that's what happened to you here, just that's happened to me all too frequently.

Lenia - For sure!

JustinM - So true and sad about the Costco dumplings. Here it was something that could be on Sunset Blvd for the prices, but this is Portland for cryin out loud!

Aw, that's too bad! Little Tokyo in L.A. misses you. It'll treat your wallet real nice ;-)
