Perfect For: Adventurous Eating Casual Weeknight Dinner Date Night Dining Solo

There’s plenty of good izakaya in LA, but Tsubaki in Echo Park already feels a grade above the rest. From the trout ceviche to the chicken meatballs to the curry soba noodles, this menu is absolutely stacked and surprisingly affordable as well. Our move is to sit at the bar and strike up a conversation with the fantastic staff who will no doubt tell you about personal trips to Japan and proceed to get you very drunk on shochu. Tsubaki might be new, but our money’s on it being around for a very long time.
