My SO & I haven’t been to Yamagen in awhile so I jumped at the chance to go to dinner there tonight. We went at 5:45 pm just in time for the early bird specials which are available Dbetween 5 – 6 pm. My SO ordered the yakitori don ($7.50) and I ordered the ebi tendon ($9). The specials come with a canned soft drink, tsukemono, and soup.
My SO ordered the yakitori don ($7.50) and I ordered the ebi tendon ($9). Unfortunately, while our server was pleasant and attentive, the food was just ok.
Sometimes, the memory of a place is better than reality. The food was too salty and the tempura soggy. I’m not sure if the cooks changed but the food was better before. Prices are reasonable but I don’t think I’ll go back.
Yamagen is located at 2210 South King Street.
