Similar to Izayaka, Robata restaurant serves small plates along with a variety of sake and Shochu (Japanese potato liquor). The main difference is Robata's main focus is a grill. At Iroriya in Los Altos, a charcoal grill is their star. Their house-dried fish grilled on their Robata is fantastic. Many of their fish comes from Japan and sashimi is excellent as well.
Summer menu dish: Salt Marinated Tomato w/ Shiso Granite
Grilled "Dried" Fish
Flying Fish Sashimi
Reservation is highly recommended.
