Komida, in an area of the Hollywood & Highland complex that used to house H.Wood night club, is a brick-and-mortar extension of the popular Yamashiro Grill booth, which drew lines at the Yamashiro Farmers Market.

The new restaurant, which opened last month and serves a menu of Japanese tacos the same and similar to what the booth served, is operated by Yamashiro owners Andre and Alana Ulloa and Brock Kleweno, Yamashiro’s executive chef.


Tacos including braised short rib; hoisin duck confit; and miso-sake marinated black cod come with inventive sides including spicy wasabi guacamole.

A happy hour was recently announced that offers $3 short rib tacos; $2 Thai chicken satay tacos; $15 beer buckets (buckets include four Singha or Singha Light Beers); $15 carafes of Jamaica agua fresca Champagne cocktail; and $15 carafes of white-lychee fruit sangria.

Deals can be had Mondays through Fridays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

1738 N. Orange Drive, Hollywood, (323) 466-5124.
