Kirbie's Cravings


Whether it’s authentic or less traditional we love looking for new Japanese restaurants and markets. If you love Japanese food, we’ve gathered our adventures (the good, the bad, and the great) so you can find some new places to try. From our experience at Benihana to our favorite Pretty Manju at Nijiya, we love sharing our experiences exploring Japanese cuisine with our readers.
