To kick things off, guests can choose a variety of Japanese starters, including traditional gyoza and edamame, as well as more adventurous items, like takoyaki and geso fry. The takoyaki are five balls of fried octopus topped with crispy flakes, a Japanese aioli and a sweet Worcestershire-style sauce. The geso fry are hearty fried squid legs. Additionally, the Marufuku bites, Japanese steamed buns filled with homemade pork Chashu, make for a warm, comforting treat.
