Tokyo: Two Casual Dinners - Recommendations Needed

Hi, I'm going to be traveling to Tokyo next week for work and looking for a couple of suggestions for casual dinners on two evenings. I'd really like to visit a yakitori restaurant for one dinner. I'm staying in Chiyoda, but willing to travel to a different area of the city. I ate at Fuku a few years ago (delicious!), so I wanted to get input on where else I should try?

For the other dinner, I have a late evening flight out of Haneda, so looking to see if there is good place that I could grab an early dinner and then make my way to Haneda? Somewhere relatively quick would be ideal (perhaps an izakaya or tempura restaurant?).

All suggestions are welcome! Thanks!

Just recently moved to the West Valley and was curious if anyone could recommend any taco trucks out this way? Last week, I found a great truck at the corner of Lassen and Reseda, but haven't seen it there since. Any recs would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanksgiving Turkey Help [moved from L.A. board]

We're cooking Thanksgiving dinner for the first time this year (for 9 people) and could use some help selecting a turkey. Any recommendations on a specific brand? I checked our local Gelson's and Whole Foods. Looks like there are many options including Shelton's, Diestel, Heidi's Hens, Empire, Heirloom, Zacky, Mary's Organic, etc.

Any suggestions would be appreciated...thanks!

I am trying to remember the name of a great restaurant (Asian and Indian?) right next to the Bradbury building in Downtown LA. The owner is also the chef. If anyone knows the name, please post. Thank you for your help. Trying to go tomorrow for dinner.

Any suggestions near Tacoma/South of SEA?

Hi all, I'm going to be traveling next week for work and staying south of the airport near Tacoma for just one night. My flight is getting in at 9:00 pm, so I'm looking for a place that stays open late enough for dinner. Something fairly casual...I love seafood (especially in the NW), but really open to anything....any suggestions? thanks...
