10. Make Friends With Pat At Niki's Tokyo Inn



The notion that hole-in-the-wall, often unsightly joints make for some of the best food couldn't be more true for Niki's Tokyo Inn, an inconspicuous family-owned spot you'll find off West Hildebrand between San Pedro and Interstate 10. Walk in and you're sure to be greeted by head waiter Pat, who with a wide smile and jovial demeanor will usher you to either the standard table seating area, traditional Japanese tatami seating or the sushi bar. Peruse the extensive menu for fresh, no-muss, no-fuss Japanese options, and trust Pat or his wait staff when they suggest going for a chef's choice of sushi. Pat has also been known to treat his loyal customers with little surprises here and there, from off-the-menu rolls to homegrown fruit. 819 W. Hildebrand Ave., (210) 736-5471
