my favorite 'hole in the wall' japanese restaurant in the entire bay area! excellent food. extremely reasonable cost compared to other japanese restaurants, and typically friendly hosts. <br> the only thing you have to worry about is driving by on el camino before you realize it and the parking is limited. but, it is definately worth it.

From a native Japanese person's perspective, it's a rare and gleeful occurance to find a genuine homestyle Japanese restaurant in the Bay Area. The best way to explore Higuma is to sample numerous little appetizers (similiar to tapas in a Spanish restaurant). Among my favorites are: a dish called 'Hirame no Usuzukuri', pieces of thinly spiced halibut in a tasty Ponzu sauce (call it a Japanese carpaccio), 'Agedashi Dofu', made with a smooth silken fried tofu topped of with a coat of minced ginger, and 'Zanngi', homemade Japanese style fried chicken reminiscent of my mom's own. If you have a craving for authentic homestyle Japanese cuisine, this is the spot!

This very small place is very hidden along El Camino Real, as there are only about 12 tables in the whole place. A very quiet but excellent place for sushi. They do carry a few dinners also, but the sushi has always been very good. Their tempura is always fresh, as per the vegetable ones. The prices are right on track, and they do take out. I think they are closed on either Mondays or Sundays at times. The service is fast, as many sushi places are a wait for your items if they are the slightest bit busy.
