Tasty New Japanese Small Plates at Sanraku in the Metreon

Sanraku at the Metreon has unveiled a list of a dozen Japanese small plates, available at happy hour, 3 to 7 p.m. daily. We enjoyed every morsel of the dishes we tried:

Nanbanzuke, a stack of tiny whole fish marinated in vinegar

• Japanese-style ceviche, seafood lightly marinated in lemon juice and topped with tobiko (flying fish roe)

Ankimo, the Japanese delicacy of monkfish liver, steamed, chilled, and sliced

• Albacore tataki, lightly seared white tuna served with thick Japanese chili sauce

Niku jaga, a stew of beef and potatoes served with pickled ginger, a popular comfort food in Japan
