Hotaru Japanese Restaurant - San Mateo, California

Category: Gourmet Dining 2010-01-28

Page 1 of 1
There are many Japanese restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area, and our favorite is Hotaru located in the city of San Mateo.
Occupying a small store front on 3rd Avenue steps away from El Camino Real, Hotaru is very popular with the workers and residents in the surrounding quaint San Mateo downtown area.
Hotaru opens 365 days a year, promptly at 11:30 am every day. When we arrived at 11:35 this morning, several tables were already occupied by hungry customers.
With only about 60 seats on the ground level, the restaurant fills up very fast.
Signs for daily special sushi in front of a small counter.
Fresh fish and seafood in the refrigerated case waiting for sashimi and sushi lovers.
The set menus are usually very good values.
My usual favorite is the Bento Box for $9.95
Service is usually very fast. My Bento Box consists of:

Maguro and Sake Nigiri sushi

California Roll

Chicken Teriyaki

Vegetable and Shrimp Tempura

Grilled Mackerel




Miso soup

Thre is so much food and I usually get a free refill of steamed rice. There is enough food for a very large appetite.
Another of our favorite is the Nigiri sushi set, for $11.00
A fine assortment of sushi:


Shino Maguro




Tekkyu roll

Finish with a steaming hot bowl of udon, a great lunch especially on a cold winter day.
