Ichimi Ann@Torrance ★★★

Homemade Udon & Soba from Inaba. Fresh & Amazing. Affordable Japanese comfort fast food. I basically came up with a secret menu with their add-ons based on a limited edition soba I had in Ikebukuro in 2008. Cold Tororo Soba with Mentai and Onsen Tamago add-ons (served on the side). Their Tempura are tasty with sauce already integrated. Total bill for the 2 meals below was $40.70. Fast food self-seating with self-served iced tea and water. Return tray by the cashier when done. Free street parking.

Cold Tororo Soba with Mentai & Onsen Tamago add on (served on the side) - about $20

Cheng Can Cook: Black Garlic Tokotsu Noodles ★

Cheng Can Cook: 出前一丁 Black Garlic Oil Tonkotsu Flavor Instant Noodles. I upgraded it with Wagyu Beef, Mushroom, Onion, Fried Bean Curd, Crisp Lettuce, & Scallions. The garlic flavor is nice but not worth the hype.

Súp Noodle Bar@Buena Park ★★★

Best Pho Ever. Have been coming to Súp since before the pandemic but have only been ordering togo after the pandemic. Dining in here for the first time since a while ago, it blew my mind. It's hands down the best Pho ever. Soup base is a 48-hour bone broth. Very tasty. Free unlimited noodle refill. Free basil and extra onion upon request. Also like their Lomo Saltado and Garlic Noodles with Shrimp. Free Herbal Iced Tea per Yelp check-in per person (dine-in only), which is $4 value. Great service. Free parking in lot. Also has branch in Irvine (relocated from Cerritos).

Tanakaya@Tustin ★

Japanese Noodles Restaurant with long wait in Tustin. For a Saturday lunch, there was an hour wait to get seated. Food took about 30 minutes to come out. Soba Sampler was nice but not worth the long wait. Ume Shiso had the strongest flavor. Their food tend to be salty, so don't pour all the dipping sauce into the cup. The tempura was great too.
