Nanbankan and Scoops
There's how many yakitori places on Santa Monica Blvd in West LA? Somehow I'd missed this one before. Nanbankan was pretty damned good, aside from the kobe beef being disappointing... it's also currently under construction or something, so if I hadn't been pointed EXACTLY to the entrance, I never would've found it!
Scoops Westside is still working on their appearance-- needs work to build character-- but it's tasty tasty at least.
