Aburaya is a restaurant inspired by punk rock and a mission to provide affordable Japanese cuisine, such as the fried chicken and more to the local community. Originally, Aburaya started as a pop-up, but settled in a more permanent location on Oakland’s 17th St after popular demand for the chicken and other dishes. They are also a repeat winner of the title “Best of East Bay” from East Bay Express and have been in business since June of 2014.
The loan from Main Street Launch helped fund Aburaya’s remodeling and expansion to another location, along with improving cash flow. “I’m grateful to Main Street Launch’s staff for helping me get through the process and all the paperworks,” says Adachi.
