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)

Joël Robuchon@Las Vegas ★★★

Fantastic 3-Michelin Star French Restaurant in Vegas. Speechless. Best meal ever. Superb quality and attentive service. The plates were also hand-painted instantly with elegant graphics design. Love the minute details at the restaurant. Meal A is $198. It's totally worth it.

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. The Uni Cream Pasta was great. (well, Blue Marlin had the best Uni Pasta, but they were closed down) Service was really slow, so they gave us complimentary Watercress appetizer. Don't forget to purchase a box of Uni home here after your meal.
