One can get pretty hungry while sitting for hours in class on a late Saturday afternoon.  With grumbling bellies, Higa and I had dinner on our minds, so we decided to hit up Musha after lecture for some izakaya goodness with C, who was coming fresh off of a competition project.  We combed through the menu and ordered in several rounds.  The big hits were the aburi saba, seared mackerel which was blowtorched at the table, and the itame somen, garlic noodles that Higa could not stop raving about.  At some point, there was definitely a kind word of caution from our sweet waitress that we had ordered quite “a lot,” but we three did a mighty fine job of cleaning up most of every plate and bowl in front of us, washing it all down along the way with a cold pitcher of Sapporo, barley shochu and some ume tea.  I love Musha.  I often forget about it for some reason, but I’m always eager to go back when I do remember that it’s right there on Wilshire.  Mucho Musha love!

    I love how the shochu is served with a straw. Japanese are soo cute. There’s a new Musha in Pasadena, I should visit again soon.
