Yakko-San Top 100

At this izakaya in North Miami Beach, many of the best dishes begin and end in the deep fryer. Try the crispy pork onion salad, which combines savory deep-fried morsels of pork with sliced cherry tomatoes, radishes, red onions, and sprinkles of bitter watercress. Or opt for the crispy bok choy, served with a garlic-soy sauce. On any given night, Yakko-San offers more than a hundred dishes, from soups and rice to noodles, tempura, grilled items, and sushi, including ankimo — sliced monkfish liver known as the foie gras of the sea. New Normal: Though traditionally a late-night spot, Yakko-San now closes at midnight.
