If you’re looking for bar food on Sawtelle, Furaibo is your place. This izakaya is just like you’d find in Japan - a dark space with some separate tatami rooms, beer and sake glasses that will never be empty, and bite-sized food to make sure the beer doesn’t go to your head. It’s big and full of tables, so gather the crew, order multiple rounds of chicken wings, and come get a bit rowdy.
