This will be a quickie...This restaurant has no website (really?!), so I can't remember the prices..Village Yokocho, a Japanese tapas spot in the East Village, is a festive and very loud restaurant. Do not go here if you are looking for intimate conversations. Go here if you crave beer and decent tapas of Japanese descent.
Skip the shumai that taste like they just came out of a microwave, instead go for the fried squid legs, they are tasty, addictive, and fabulous! Everything else is just fine, but not worth a special trip. Some cold spicy noodles with veggies was good. A meat dish served in tin foil, actually was better than good, I enjoyed the dish immensely. Have no idea what the dish was too be honest..Octopus balls were fine. Sunomono (Japanese salad with vinegar), with fish eggs, sashimi and uni, was more rice than fish.
Village Yokocho is good for those drunken nights you crave Japanese tapas..Just make sure you bring ear plugs.
