Yuzuki Japanese Eatery
Where we've featured it
A healthy dinner out can be a challenge, unless you’re really into eating Blue Barn out of a bowl instead of a really inconvenient Chinese food to-go box. Yuzuki in the Mission scratches that itch without lines or hassle, and is one of the better Japanese spots in the city that also still happens to be very easy to pop into.
You’ve probably walked by Yuzuki on your weekly late-night burrito hunt - it’s on a quiet, practically unmarked corner in the Mission, and serves some of our favorite Japanese small plates around. The yakitori are all spot-on and the agedashi tofu is also excellent. It’s very easy to walk in and grab a table for a night of romance while patting yourself on the back for making a rainy Tuesday into a respectable date night.
Yuzuki might be one of the most underrated restaurants in San Francisco. The immaculate Japanese small plates here will impress you with their careful construction and flavor. Get some yakitori and salmon rice and go from there.
