101 South: San Mateo, Hotaru Japanese Restaurant

Hotaru Japanese Restaurant 33 E. 3rd Ave./El Camino Real, (650) 343-1152. L-D daily; $. No reservations. Featuring a traditional Japanese decor, with some wood booths and a small sushi bar as well as tables and chairs, this small “homestyle” Japanese restaurant dishes up some tasty fare. An extensive sushi menu is the main draw, but delicious tempura and tonkatsu—a lightly-breaded fried pork cutlet—are also options. Expect a short wait; it is always packed with people waiting.
