I am a fan of steak! And I have tried many restaurants here in Pomona. I have found one of the most delicious steak dishes ever, right here in good ol' Downtown Pomona. And the winner is, The sizzling Teppan Filet Mignon at Sakura Ichi. They bring it over in a bowl and pour it over and hot iron skillet at your table. Now I've had good Filet Mignon before, but this beats them with the sesuane flavor and tremendous portions (I had to take mine home and enjoy it for lunch today). We also enjoy our $9 pitcher of Kirin beer and to our luck, it was happy hour and got a second pitcher free.
We frequent this eatery quite often and have made friends with the owner, Leo. He was our first waiter and we have fell in love with him ever since. Leo always makes it a point to come over and chat and make us laugh. He reminds us that now they are having live entertainment on Friday and Saturday Nights. Thats just all to good to pass up.
Sakura Ichi is located in the Mission Promenade at 101 W. Mission Blvd.
