  • We're at Robata Jinya. It's like a tapas kind of place where you can order small Japanese dishes.

  • They also have sushi and they have a happy hour special from 5-7 so we're happy to see that.

  • There's some interesting things in here like.. they have a homemade tofu

  • where they make it in front of your eyes. I don't think I've ever heard of that so...

  • we might try it, I don't know. We're still kind of debating. They have the wagyu lava stone grill.

  • That does sound good but I'm gonna go with the ramen. They have half portion sizes to so

  • again, you can try different things. It's like my favorite way of eating because I just want to try everything!

  • And I got some hot green tea because it's very cold in LA today.

  • I'm just like really chilled to the bone. So I'm trying to warm up in LA.

  • When I booked this place, I knew it was a Japanese place obviously

  • but I didn't really know the story behind it and when we came in here, there's little history on the menu

  • which I like that when you know a little bit of the history of the restaurant.

  • So it actually started in Japan and they were actually known for their yakitori

  • which is like when you grill meat on skewers and it's like a really popular dish in Japan.

  • Especially at izakayas. Or in the wintertime, you'll see people on the streets

  • like street food and it's really really good because usually they cook it with.. how do you say it, charcoal?

  • It really develops a really good flavor.

  • So, years later, I think it said the son opened up a store here in the US.

  • So we're pretty excited to try the yakitori. They don't really call it yakitori here, they just call it robata yaki.

  • So um... which I'm excited because I really like that. It's one of my comfort foods that I like

  • besides ramen - Crystal and I love ramen.

  • So we ordered a few those and it's awesome because it's happy hour so we get to try a lot of them.

  • So I'm excited to have some yakitori... oh no, robata yaki. Hahaha.

  • Can I get the tebasaki?

  • WAITRESS: Sure.

  • want tenderloins too, right?

  • CRYSTAL: Yes.

  • Two tenderloins.

  • I really needed this hot ramen.
