​Another restaurant raising money for Japan quake relief: Nombe. Actually, Nombe started collecting donations last Saturday, day after the first full day of news about the tragedy broke over CNN. Co-owner Mari Takahashi says the Mission restaurant is designating one dish a day as a donation vehicle, contributing $3 from each sale to the Japan Consulate-General's earthquake relief fund. Today's dish: soy-marinated quail ($12). Past items included chicken wings (pictured) and tonkotsu ramen, Sadly, says Takahashi, there's no designated end date for the donation offer. "Things only seem to be getting worse," she says.

Nombe: 2491 Mission (at 21st St.), 681-7150.
