Chef Aaron Barnett reviews Saba nanbanzuke at
"This is one of the best mackerel dishes in town—clean, firm and slightly sweet. A must-order dish, even if you hate that kind of thing."
Chef Aaron Barnett reviews Sanma at
"They always seem to have some version of this pickled mackerel on the menu. It is fatty, sweet, tart, and slightly stinky. It's perfect before a big bowl of soup."
Chef Jason French reviews Ramen at
"Sick of ramen talk. Eat good ramen. Have fun. Biwa has great, fun ramen. The broth is a combination of pork and chicken with shoyu. It comes with a soft-boiled egg and chasyu pork, but there’s a list of add-ins you can choose from, like seaweed or kimchi greens."
Chef John Gorham reviews Shio-yaki saba at
"Maybe the best fish I've ever eaten, don't miss the salt-grilled mackerel under Biwa's 'Yakimono' menu. It's incredibly tender and flavorful hot off the grill."
Chef Gregory Gourdet reviews Kimchi kara-age at
"These are crispy bites of tart, crunchy, funky kimchi. The batter and frying add yet another dimension to the already flavor-crazy kimchi, an unusual and unique take on something already awesome. Talk about night food! The grilled meat and scallop skewers, big bowls of ramen, and Japanese salads will also keep you chilling in this underground den until closing."
