Ise-Shima@Torrance ★

Extensive Course Dinner. Miyako Couse comes with Miyako Salad, Tempura, Vegetables, Main Dish of your choice, Miso Soup, Rice, and Mochi Ice Cream. Apple Ginger Dressing in the Miyako Salad was amazing, especially well with the sliced almond chips. Sushi is just ok. A bit too big. Sesame Mochi Ice Cream is the best flavor. Service is nice, but MaƮtre d' at front desk is rude.

Ramen Burger@Torrance Mitsuwa

Ramen Burger Line-Up Madness! Today, 1,000+ people lined up at Mitsuwa Torrance for the ever-sacred Ramen Burger from Go! Ramen. (No, it's not free!) They are only here for one day, and they are only selling 500 of these. Have to line up at least 2 hours early to get these crazy burgers. By the time I arrived, they already maxed out. My friend told me she arrived at 10am and got the burger at 2pm, a total of 4 hours wait! ABC Eyewitness News was here to document this legendary crazy moment too.

The Ever-Precious Ramen Burger
a gracious customer was nice enough to let me take a snap of her victorious trophy

Happy victorious people finally get to see their Ramen Burgers after waiting for hours

Lining up outside of Mitsuwa
1,000+ people lining up around the streets under the hot weather

This is definitely an intriguing concept, but the reviews and feedbacks are not that great. The burger patty doesn't look that appetizing Maybe it's not worth it after all. Why not just utilize the 2 hours at home and make your own nice Ramen Burger?

Maruhide Uni Club@Torrance ★★★

Uni Heaven. Must-go for Uni lovers. Uni dishes with Uni directly imported from supplier. My favorite is sashimi rice bowl #3 with Uni, Salmon Roe, and Scallop. Everything is so fresh. However, the Uni Cream Pasta was not as good as last time. It tasted more like Tofu Pasta. They have Sake Marinated Uni, but I am not a fan of it.They also have omakase available. Don't forget to purchase a box of Uni home here after your meal.

Ichimi Ann Bamboo Garden@Torrance ★★★

Best Soba Ever. Love the texture and freshness of the handmade noodles. I enjoy eating Soba with Tororo, white slimly stuff that adds texture to the noodles. Their Soba is better than their Udon. Prices are inexpensive, but portions might be small. This is a fast food place, and it's cash only.

Unatoro $11.40 (cold) with Onsen Tamago $2.50

Nishin Soba $9.50 (hot)
