Now we just need Ichiran to come to LA at reasonable prices…
More ramen? Give me a Mister Donut. Okay - an Ippudo with a Mister Donut next door. And a real okonomiyaki counter grill next to that - Hiroshima-style. Almost forgot - we need a dedicated sake shop too. Just thinking out loud - carry on…
Now that would be a game changer
Do they have any outlets outside of Japan?
Interesting news. Although them partnering with Panda Express to expand in the U.S. (including this L.A. branch) has me worried.
I wonder if they’re recipe / food is affected by this?
Although they have partnered with Uncle Tetsu, the Japanese cheesecake purveyor. I haven’t tried their Arcadia location yet, but I’ve heard that their American cheesecakes are of a similar quality to the original.
This luddite will toast to that!!! While the okonomiyaki is-a-grillin’, we gotta down some frosty Asahi, sweating it out with the other salarymen suits while catching them Carps on the ‘terebi’ in the bottom of the 8th…
You’ve been there! And you brought up another on the wish list - the food, beer and comradery at a Japanese baseball game!
Love me some Mister Donut!
Some of Mister Donut’s flavors I enjoyed in Japan are probably not going to do well here - yomogi comes to mind. But the quality for a chain is off the hook. And the texture of their cake donuts must be patented or something - have yet to find it here.
