Robata Jinya – Excellent Japanese Cuisine and Happy Hour Deals in Los Angeles California


♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪ We’re at Robata Jinya. It’s like a tapas kind of place where you can order small Japanese dishes. They also have sushi and they have a happy hour special from 5-7 so we’re happy to see that. There’s some interesting things in here like.. they have a homemade tofu where they make it in front of your eyes. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of that so… we might try it, I don’t know. We’re still kind of debating. They have the wagyu lava stone grill. That does sound good but I’m gonna go with the ramen. They have half portion sizes to so again, you can try different things. It’s like my favorite way of eating because I just want to try everything! And I got some hot green tea because it’s very cold in LA today. I’m just like really chilled to the bone. So I’m trying to warm up in LA. When I booked this place, I knew it was a Japanese place obviously but I didn’t really know the story behind it and when we came in here, there’s little history on the menu which I like that when you know a little bit of the history of the restaurant. So it actually started in Japan and they were actually known for their yakitori which is like when you grill meat on skewers and it’s like a really popular dish in Japan. Especially at izakayas. Or in the
wintertime, you’ll see people on the streets like street food and it’s really really good because usually they cook it with.. how do you say it, charcoal? It really develops a really good flavor. So, years later, I think it said the son opened up a store here in the US. So we’re pretty excited to try the yakitori. They don’t really call it yakitori here, they just call it robata yaki. So um… which I’m excited because I really like that. It’s one of my comfort foods that I like besides ramen – Crystal and I love ramen. So we ordered a few those and it’s awesome because it’s happy hour so we get to try a lot of them. So I’m excited to have some yakitori… oh no, robata yaki. Hahaha. Can I get the tebasaki? WAITRESS: Sure. And…you want tenderloins too, right? CRYSTAL: Yes. Two tenderloins. ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪ Awww, so warm. Mmmm, smells so good. The aroma of green tea… Yeah, some good stuff. Some good tea. Hahaha ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪ CANDY: Good? So good! OMG. This is so great on a cold day too. This really hit the spot. It’s so good, I almost want to cry today. Because I’m just so cold! I can’t get over how cold I am. I really needed this hot ramen. ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪ I got two hand rolls. So this one… I think this one’s the vegetable one. And I think this one is… no, is this the vegetable? Yeah. ♪♪ MUSIC ♪♪
