Cherryblossom Noodle Cafe

Homey, unpretentious Japanese noodle shop that never disappoints and is sure to leave you as sated as a sumo wrestler at an all-you-can-eat steak house. Go for the specials, like the Cajun-fried shrimp with the crunchy heads still on the bodies or the small, whole squid in a tomato-anchovy sauce. The spicy Korean beef and noodle dish is a classic. Wash it down with plenty of hot (or cold) sake, then top it all off with a coffee jelly for dessert.
