A Japanese restaurant that offers a diverse menu of soulful regional specialties. Hashiguchi is unassuming inside and out, but service is superfast, and you're bound to see plenty of Japanese-American customers -- always a positive sign -- crowding around the well-worm wooden tables. At lunch the grilled salt mackerel has a nicely charred skin that gives way to a moist and flay interior. At night nibble on deep-fried tubes of dense, green-flecked fish cake, served with a dollop of creamy Japanese mayonnaise.
Price: $$ ($10-$20)
