If Godzilla ever visited the Old Pueblo, we imagine Yoshimatsu would be the first place he'd stop for a bite before beginning his city-destroying rampage. Enter this Japanese eatery--relocated not so long ago from smaller quarters down the street--and you might think you've somehow wandered into Tokyo. The menu features a wide range of Japanese delights, including a vast selection of vegetarian options, and many of the meals come in a cute little bento box you'll want to take home. It's cheap; it's good; and it's a cool place to hang out.
