Yakitoriya is one of our favorite low-key date spots in all of the city. It's a husband-and-wife-run skewer spot where you'll get about seven skwewers per person, ranging from simple things like eggplant and chicken thigh to more fun stuff, like gizzards, hearts, and skin. Their gyoza and other appetizers are great as well. Just know, you'll leave reeking of smoky meats.

King’s Burgers / Got Sushi?

As a general rule, sushi joints attached to fast food burger chain should probably be avoided. Unless that place is Got Sushi? in Northridge.
