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 come 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.
