Featured Good Eats — 09 October 2012

For those who aren’t fervent Japan-o-philes, back in the feudal days (before the Japanese mafia took the name), Yakuza referred to those on the fringes of society. Fittingly, one of Portland’s top restaurants pays homage to misfits of a bygone era.

Inspired by the Japanese izakaya concept, Yakuza is a true food-lover’s bar, and their burger is Portland Monthly’s 2009 favorite. But it’s the hidden treasures like Hamachi and Pork Cheek that make you wonder how a nation’s pub food could be this mouthwatering. And  if their drink list doesn’t blow your mind, make sure you still have a pulse.

Boasting one of the best patios in town and one of the most romantic interiors (perfect for date-night, guys), Yakuza is one of the best dining destinations in any season. Period.
