Yuba comes to us by way of 2 former Masa (the critically acclaimed Japanese resto) alums – serving modern Japanese fare. It’s a casual, chill spot glammed up with culinary delights such as wagyu skewers and caviar-topped oysters.
There was a thoughtful presentation to each course. I loved the plates and flatware.
The menu has traditional Japanese dishes along with more unique delights featuring high-end ingredients and influences from China and Italy.
It was hard to pin down Pos because he travels all over the world touring with De La Soul. But in the end, Pos made it happen. Come to think of it, he owed me one. Besides the fact that we’ve been friends for over 10 years, I lent my MC skills to the intro of “Declaration” (Track 10) from “Art Official Intelligence”. Listen closely- LOL!
I knew his faves would include an eclectic mix of restaurants that span the globe. Check out Pos’ Sip, Chat, Chow Global flow:
I chatted with my friend Brandon Jennings the day it was announced he’d be participating in the Slam Dunk Contest. He was super excited and said ”I’m the hometown kid, shortest guy, the underdog….so I’m just going out there to make dunks, and try to win.”
With that said, I think we’re all in for a treat!
Since there’s so much talk about NBA ASW in LA, I wanted to know about Brandon’s LA Sip, Chat, Chow flow.

The dimly lit resto has a divey, cavernous feel- very different from a traditional Japanese restaurant.
It’s one part dive, one part resto, and one part lounge with a DJ (on the weekends). I love spots with unique vibes that are unexpected. Oh, and did I forget to mention that this hipster hangout is open till 2am!
Ryoko has delicious and fresh sushi with a good variety of options. If you’re feeling daring, you can try the volcano roll- it has peanut butter in it. :/
Yellowtail Scallion Roll, Crunchy Crab Roll, Alaska A, Spicy Tuna, Sashimi, Sushi
CHAT: I’ll definitely go back the next time I’m in San Fran! I love the fact that it’s a late night spot….so instead of noshing on pizza or fries after a night out- you can stop in for a spicy tuna roll!
Ryoko- 619 Taylor St / 415-775-1028
