Fact: you can’t live on milkshakes and curly fries alone. We’ve tried; we live above a 24-hour diner…

It’s a harsh reality, sure. No, wait; a terrible curse on humanity. But, it’s like Oprah said, “You can have it all. You just can’t have it all at one time.” Which basically just means, you can have milkshakes and curly fries sometimes, but not all the time. Even if the milkshakes go straight to your butt, and you’re all like, “that’s totally fine.” It’s not.

And so, in a moment of such Oprah realness, we’ve made a pact together to try out new restaurants as often as possible. Seriously, though. We did. We also made a pact to do a smoothie cleanse, but that failed within 13.5 hours. So just forget about that. It never happened. This pact is real. Dare we say, we even did a blood oath? Because, if we did say that, we’d be lying. No, yeah, we didn’t do that. We just said to each other:

Chris, “Brock, let’s start going out to new restaurants.”

Brock, “Ok, sounds good.”


So here it is. Our first new restaurant: ICHI Kakiya. And our review? Who even CARES about milkshakes.

But, on a more serious note, ICHI Kakiya truly surprised us, and in such a great, dare we say, tasty way. No, yeah, totally tasty. Sounds like a new Nicki Minaj song, Totally Tasty. Like, you know, she’s talking about you know what… Awkward. The restaurant’s small, cute and perfect for date night or a night out with just a couple friends. We say that because seating’s limited and compact. We had a few glasses of cava, a whole assortment of oysters, shrimp, mussels, lobster and clams, and even tried uni for the first time.

But, the best part was the Kabocha Dashi Soup. We took a sip at the same time, and were all like:

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, awwwwwwwwwwwwwww, oooooooooooooooh.

We receive tons of questions, asking where to go in SF. And THIS is the start of our recommendations 🙂

OH! And they have a ‘secret’ menu. Make sure to get the Japanese-style Egg Salad Sandwich 😉

    I’m definitely guilty of hitting up the same places over and over again, and I’ve made an oath with myself to start branching a little more often as well.
