BERKELEY’s BEST ●Restaurants
Manpuku 2977 College Ave./Ashby Ave., Elmwood. Though I’ve never been to Japan, this small, deep venue strikes me as what you might find there when in search of a quick meal. Order in front for both take-away or dining in, and then seat yourself at the sushi counter or at one of the tables. From the large assortment of sushi, I selected a deep-fried spicy salmon roll special and found it delicious. Ramen and udon noodle dishes and bento boxes are also good choices.
