"Yakuza will reliably impress and surprise, producing dishes beyond experience or expectation." David Sarasohn. The Oregonian 9/2/2010
Inspired by the Japanese Izakaya concept, Yakuza is a true food-lover's bar, offering exceptional drinks and signature dishes best shared with good friends. Beloved for its classic Kobe Tartar (with jalapeno lime oil + crispy poached egg), Sashimi Trio (tuna, yellowtail + salmon with Thai chili + tobiko) and the award-winning Yakuza Burger (with chevre, shoestring potatoes, house catsup + spicy mayo), Yakuza consistently ups the ante with new favorites like Grilled Octopus or Dungeness Crab Rolls with avocado + crème fraiche. Daily food specials are devised around organic, local ingredients and complement the extensive drink menu of house cocktails, a wide selection of sakes, plus beer and wine. Yakuza is tucked in a beautiful space in the Concordia neighborhood and proudly boasts one of the best outdoor patios in town. Dine and drink with us soon!
