Japanese izakaya-inspired spot serving yakitori & soba with shochus & sakes in wood-clad environs.- Google
"The squid ink risotto is delicious, and the bacon wrapped mochi."
"Chicken skewers are fantastic!"

Very cool Izakaya spot near Berkeley's campus serving yakatori skewers and other Japanese tapas. Great beer and whiskey selection too. Go on a date or with a close group of friend and cozy up in one of the traditional-style booths (no shoes!).

Move beyond the sushi! Japanese cuisine is wide and varied, and I love it all. Ippuku is mostly robata (grill) food, and it is delectable. This is as authentic as it gets around here, so move outside your comfort zone and enjoy. Unfortunately (fortunately?), Ippuku has been "found": It was even in the New York Times this morning. So make a reservation before you go.

The Japanese small plates/ bar food is worth the experience. I loved the variety of dishes. they also have a vast selection of sochu, which you should take advantage of.

Waited for about 1.5 - 2 hours for dinner on a Friday with 6 other people. We went to Jupiter around the corner for some drinks to wait). We ended up trying a wide variety of dishes (probably 15 different ones) and ordered seconds and thirds of the ones we really liked. Everything was amazing, including gizzards, hearts, bacon wrapped mochi, etc. Each person spent around $25, which was shockingly low to me.

Ippuku is the best izakaya I've ever been to. It takes itself seriously. Everything made here is of the best quality. They have lots of yakitori items, but on certain days, they have udon for lunch. They only have a certain quantity, so it can run out. They also have an impressive sochu selection. The restaurant itself is beautiful. The place is cool, dark, and smoky. The must-try item here is the bacon-wrapped mochi. Just trust me.
