Terried Sake House falls into the hole-in-the-wall category. It's a great little Japanese Izakaya on Santa Monica close to Federal. An Izakaya, of course, is a restaurant that serves beer and sake and also the food that goes with it. The place is small and a bit dingy, but the food more than makes up for it. It's also fairly inexpensive for an Izakaya, so we got to order a ton of stuff. Alright, less talk, more pictures of food. Here we go.

The place gets crowded quickly, we got there at 6 on a weeknight and didn't have to wait, but by 7 there was a good line outside. For good reason, of course. The food's tasty, authentic, wholesome and inexpensive. Our total bill came out to about $46, less tip and we were pretty full. Service is decent and polite. I'd love to come back and try more stuff.
