Re: “Hidden Gem

I've been eating at Samuari, which is the original restaurant owned by Lori, Hiro, and Irene since the late 80's. There is no better original Japanese food in Tucson then what Hiro and Lori cook up. They have since sold Samuari and have moved all their attention to Ikkyu. Ikkyu has the exact menu they had at Samuari, except there are a few more great additions the article fails to mention that are without question, fantastic. Hiro's hot ramen dishes (especially the tonkatsu ramen) served on Fridays and Saturdays is just amazing. My wife doesn't like Japanese, but loves the cold ramen they do during the summer months, which is also just fabulous. Also, the spicy tuna don (spicy tuna on top of a bed of rice, sprinkled with scallions and seaweed) is off the charts great. I'm not associate with them, just a loyal customer. They deserve more praise than they get. You see a lot of Japanese people eating there, so you know it's the real deal.
