Hollywood has itself a brand new Japanese restaurant, with the debut of Tokyo Cube to the Cahuenga Corridor. The newcomer surprisingly takes over the now-defunct Kalye Hits space, which for a while was serving some of the most inventive Filipino food in the area. Don’t worry though, they’ve since moved their operation full-time over to Beverly Boulevard just north of Koreatown.
As for Tokyo Cube, expect a casual mix of Japanese seafood specialties, including rolls, sashimi, and specials like grilled yellowtail collar and tuna steaks. There’s ramen and udon as well, all priced at or around the $10 mark, as well as poke bowls and mochi for dessert.
Inside, the place is as easygoing as they come, with bare pendant bulbs, some communal seating, and a chalkboard menu — nice, but certainly nothing fussy. Weekday hours for Tokyo Cube run 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., with noon to 10 p.m. hours on Saturday and Sunday. Now, to see if this newcomer can survive the dreaded Cahuenga Curse.
