I was down at Kokko, my favorite yakitori-ya in San Mateo the other day, and I noticed the restaurant next door was still open. We went to Kokko anyway, but my mother noticed that Usagi’s sign says “yoshoku-ya” so we needed to look that up.
Yoshoku is what, in japan, passes for Western food. While that means Curry plate, it apparently also means linguini and hamburger-steaks and a variety of other dishes. It is typified by what’s served by Denny’s in Japan.
While we have a few curry joints now, this intrigues me, and I wonder if anyone’s been to Usagi, or knows of other examples of yoshoku in the bay area.
