I heard the way to know the real japanese restaurant.
Is this a true way to know?
Most of the japanese restaurant has some kind of good-luck articles, like the small shrine called "KAMIDANA" or a charm of it , somewhere in the shop.
I am japanese,but todays 'japanese hardly ever use oaiso at wanting a bill.
I 've never hear that! ...but,it may be because i am just young.
try to order apollo juice.
The rest room of Japanese owner's restaurant is clean.
there can be upsides to a korean run japanese restaurant. kimchi gyoza is god tier delicious
Never seen that but yeah, a couple of Japanese places I've been to have kimchi as a free appetizer, including Maru Ichi (http://www.goramen.com/2009/03/maru-ichi-mountain-view-ca.html) which I'm gonna have to say is the best ramen I've ever had on this side of the pond. If the shitty tourist traps in SF's Japantown are Japanese-owned, Koreans win hand down.
see if natto is on the menu. if it is, its japanese owned.
I hear most chinese buffet restaurants are japanese owned.
here in chile chinese food is cooked by peruvians in buenos aires is cooked by bolivians in ecuador is cooked by colombians and so on and so on
I think he meant to say that if you order a lot of food at the same time, a Korean chef will get annoyed with you, whereas a Japanese chef will just acknowledge your order and get to work.
