A spicy tuna “tostada” ($5.95), lying on a crisp seaweed rice cracker, tastes and textures contrasting one another. Asupara maki ($4.25), firm spears of skewered asparagus wrapped in bacon.
Ika ($7), sliced grilled squid in teriyaki sauce on a bed of shredded cabbage, sprinkled with chili seasoning. Kawa ($2.50), which is — don’t laugh — skewered bundles of grilled chicken skin, crispy and marvelous.
The most ingenious item is the rice burger ($5.95), two crispy rice patties with mushroom and lettuce and choice of meat between them, lamb being Elaine’s favorite in this. Ingenious and yummy.
Don’t neglect their desserts. The ginger cheesecake sounded good, but the tempura ice cream was great, crunchy, cakey, cold.
Ebisu is owned and run by three Asian friends whose day jobs are at another Japanese restaurant. With all that practice before their place opens in the evening, they’re bound to get things right.
