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 refreshing 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, spanning soups and rice to noodles, tempura, grilled items, and sushi, including ankimo — sliced monkfish liver sometimes considered the foie gras of the sea. Sample the restaurant's offerings in the late evening too — the cooks don't put away their knives, pots, and pans till after 3 a.m. Insider tip: Yakko-San, thanks to its late hours, is a favorite among chefs and cooks, who often dine at the restaurant's L-shaped bar. Buy some sake or a slice of toro for a line cook — it's the decent thing to do.
