Sekiya’s Restaurant and Delicatessen never has been short on comfort. Whether it’s through warm-hearted service or familiar menu items, the established eatery has been satisfying customers for 80 years now.

Sekiya’s is best known for its okazu selections in the delicatessen section, because patrons are able to pick and choose their meals. Some favorites include Inari Sushi, Barbecue Meat, Fried Chicken, Chow Fun Noodles and Tempura.

Sekiya’s proudly supplies food for soccer games and other extracurricular activities and special events via customizable okazu party trays and Sekiya’s delicious bentos, the latter of which only are $5.75!


Diners keep warm with Yosenabe ($18.95). The hot-pot fave includes a butterfish and shiitake mushroom broth. It also has chicken, shrimp, itokonnyaku noodles, watercress, tofu and much more. An egg is cracked over the soup, and a side combination of radish, green onions and lemon add extra flavor. With a serving of white rice, your meal and hunger pains quickly disappear.
