where to buy japanese stuff

Try Aki on Santa Monica about half mile west of the 405. Nothing fancy. Just solid Japanese food, including sushi bar.

Chicken at FuRaiBo

I'm pretty sure that they cook the chicken on skewers. That is what is making the scores.

Broadway Eats With The Family?

You can go to the Pantry on Fig and 8th or take the metro to Alvarado and eat at Langer's Deli. Also take the metro back to Union Station and eat at Phillipe's or up the street from Phillipe's at CBS Restaurant (Chinese).

State of Barbecue in Las Vegas

I recommend the Rib Crib on Desert Inn just east of Durango. While I haven't tried Salt Lick, I have tried Daves, Buckingham, MCB and BBQ Masters and I think the Rib Crib beats them all. It is New Orleans style bbq.

Mitsuwa Marketplace Food Court - Venice & Centinela

I ditto Tampopo. The place next door to Tampopo makes a good tonkatsu curry.
