Tajima 2
Mabo tofu ramen.  Started out good but it grew…off…me?  Can you say that?
Tajima 4
Okonomiyaki.  Kind of lumpish and heavy.

  • Servers’ recommendations were given with confidence!  We had two who waited on us, and they were both helpful and charming.  Unfortunately, I hated the omu-yakisoba that the girl recommended, but I felt like I had to eat a good amount of it so she wouldn’t feel bad.

    Omu-yakisoba.  Blaaargh.
  • They revamped and are expanding.  They used to focus more on Japanese clientele, and now they’re gearing toward yuppies.  Tajima used to be homey, and they had manga in the waiting area and Japanese signs.  Now, it’s all fancy with a big bar.
  • This restaurant was a go-to for me, especially for late-night dining.  Now, I would just go to Yakitori Yakyudori or Yokohama Yakitori Koubou.
  • They have fountain soda!  This is very rare in an Asian restaurant, Nick notes with excitement.  (Jenne and I could not care less.)
