Yakko-San

3881 NE 163rd St. North Miami Beach, FL 33160 | North Dade | 305-947-0064

Location Description:

The Japanese eatery Yakko-San started as a modest 65-seater on West Dixie Highway in North Miami Beach more than 11 years ago. In March 2011, the izakaya (drinks and small bites) joint moved into its current space on 163rd Street. What was once a small, inconspicuous restaurant became a sleek 140-seater. They also added a full liquor license and a sushi bar, which offers sashimi, nigiri, and makizushi (sushi rolls). But the eatery's best dishes still begin and end in the deep fryer. Try the crispy pork onion salad, which combines savory, deep-fried morsels of pork with refreshing sliced cherry tomatoes, radishes, red onions, and sprinkles of bitter watercress. Or the crispy bok choy, served with a garlic-soy sauce. Sample the restaurant's offerings -- which are all priced from $2 to $25 -- in the late evening too. Yakko-San's cooks don't put away their knives, pots, and pans until after 3 a.m.
