This 47-year-old Little Tokyo joint, which was originally started by two sisters, is filled with all kinds of Japanese comfort foods, like chicken katsu curry, oyakodon (stir-fried chicken and egg), and zaru soba. Plus, most things cost less than $15 here - which actually might be even more comforting than the food itself. Call (213) 626-9132 or order through their website.
