4649, Yoroshiku in Seattle WA

From their website: 4649, Yoroshiku storefront

With seafood so fresh in the pacific northwest, most Japanese restaurants focus on fresh fish aka, sushi.  But not Keisuke Kobayashi who opened his [not sushi] Japanese restaurant called 4649, Yoroshiku located in Wallingford.  The name of the restaurant, 4649 sounds like yoroshiku when you say each number: yon-roku-shi-ku which, according to their website translates to “pleased to meet you”.

Like most establishments in Wallingford there is street parking around the neighborhood.  The space is long and dark offering seating at the counter or at a table.

The menu is influenced by foods of Hokkaido which is located in northern Japan.  What that really means is you won’t find your regular Japanese menu items like chicken teriyaki or the above mentioned sushi.  Their specialty seems to be yakitori, skewered meats grilled then topped with salt or a variety of other sauces and toppings.  You’ll find cold and warm starters, a yakitori menu as well as house specials.

Note a different lunch and dinner menu.  If you’re looking for a bowl of ramen (which is pretty good) either go for lunch or hope they offer it on their “specials” for the evening.  According to their website, Happy Hour is offered Tuesday-Friday from 5pm-6pm with a [meager] discount on drinks.
