20180420_193032

Hatch Yakitori + Bar inside The Bloc shopping complex on 7th Street is one of our favorite places to eat in DTLA.  Okay, stop reading this right now and make your reservations.  It’s that good.  My husband and I decided to give the place a try the other night.  We went in without any expectations.  We knew nothing about Chef Shemtob and we didn’t know what “yakitori” was (I just looked it up.  It is Japanese meat skewers).  Well, the place blew us away.  To start, the staff is super friendly.  We sat the counter and sparked up conversations with the servers, staff and the chef.  The place has a super chill vibe.   Continue reading
