I met Ichiban’s owner Jacky Cai shortly after he opened the restaurant in Sheffield, Alabama.  Jacky is a people person and enjoys interacting with his customers.  First off, I like some oriental food but not a lot.  I am actually allergic to seafood so I have to be careful what I eat.  So, here is […]
