    La Sosta Enoteca is a romantic Italian restaurant that is great for a date especially if you are in the mood for gourmet Italian food and wine in an intimate atmosphere that is charmingly lit by candles. The cuisine here is delicious including the handmade pastas, semi-dried tomatoes and other foods which are all amplified by exceptional service.

    For a piece of Haiwaiian cuisine, go to The Loft Hawaiian restaurant in Torrance. If you come to The Loft you must have their Island Fried Chicken and Bacon Fried Rice which is a generous serving of Hawaiian comfort food that you truly cannot miss. Everything on the menu comes in huge portions including the Kahlua Pork Egg Rolls which are simply as good as it gets when it comes to Hawaiian fare in ... read more >

    "The not ideally named octopus balls with mochi cheese are excellent here. Actually, they’re called takoyaki. Let them cool down a little before tasting. It’s not unlike McDonald’s apple pie in that sense. A range of noodles include some great menu choices. The ramune drink is a citrusy kids’ drink that is worth pigging out on. Gyozas as appetizers are great. They close late, so if you’re feeling ... read more >

    "They make great broth here, with the richness of comfort food. The tempura in the soup are delish (in the tanuki udon) although the diversity on offer means you could try any of the udon according to your own tastes. Duck and green onion, melted mochi and cheese, and other more conventional udon are all great. The noodles are cooked to perfection. A range of appetizers and sides such as the natto ... read more >

    "It’s a steakhouse, so the title refers to beef as well as the supreme view of the city. The lounge offers a 360 degree view. All day cocktails, breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all served here. And you can snack if you don’t want a full meal. You can enjoy lobster dishes for every course. The filet mignon or porterhouse are great if you want to fill up on just one protein rich dish. You’re here f ... read more >

    Cuisine:Japanese, Noodle Shop

    2015 W Redondo Beach Blvd Gardena CA 90247
    (310) 329-1335
    "A bar to sit at while you eat (as with many Japanese noodle houses), and extra noodles come for free if you need or want them (although there may in fact be a charge just shy of a buck at the time of going to press). The texture of the noodles is specified by the customer, like a steak. You can choose from hard to soft. You’ll be asked how well oiled you want the soup and how flavorsome you want ... read more >

    "The sweet potato fries are the best. You’d expect as much from a vegetable specialist. Nachos here feature toppings of every imaginable description. Feels like a calorific disaster, but it’s a little healthier because it’s pure vegan! There are specials that sometimes feature that aren’t on the day to day menu. Look out for them or ask. "Crispy chickin", punning on chicken and chickpeas, is a del ... read more >

    This venue has a menu so extensive that there’s something for everyone. Try seasoned meatballs, pepperoni, and pastrami with a nicely biting marinara sauce and mozzarella. Boar’s head meat is another sandwich filling found on the menu which is a boon at any deli. You know you’re spoiled for a choice of meats when you see that. While it may seem the menu is meat heavy, there are other sandwich fill ... read more >

    A family run establishment, the staff is welcoming and accommodating as soon as you set foot inside. They serve very good fruit Mojitos here if you’re thirsty. Their dishes are creative, with ingredients such as salsa, garlic, beans, rice and onion brought to bear on grilled chicken or roast port or other meats that are infused with delicious flavor and cooked to perfection. Try the Pappas Rellena ... read more >

    If you’re passing this place and you’ve already eaten or you’re not too sure if you want to eat Indian, just go in and ask for a portion of the vegetable samosas with mango chutney. Tender pieces of lamb in every lamb dish, a chicken tikka that screams flavor, fresh from the oven garlic bread, and much more. There is the helpful and ubiquitous spice rating so that you don’t leave the venue after a ... read more >

    (310) 532-9348
    Don’t judge a book by its cover. As with many such establishments, the shop front isn’t fit for purpose: This is a top class venue with some great food and classy décor including shelves and (something of) an open kitchen. Choice of noodles, choice of toppings, and then (if you want) a choice of mini bowls for each dish. Get a fishcake (shrimp and scallops), tempura, eel, egg or curry soba, for ex ... read more >
