These guys make mochi on premise. Always fresh. Once you taste fresh mochi, you will never buy the store stuff. Sometimes they run out of product in the afternoon so go early.
Get here early as the lines are long. We've always had to wait. Atmosphere is great with lots of different dishes to choose from. Prices are very reasonable and service is good. Seating is crowded but not cramped.
We usually order take out (spring rolls, egg rolls, and calamari) when walking home. We end up eating most of the food on our way home because we can't wait to eat. I think that says it all.
Tokyo 77 is a warm, welcoming place to be for breakfast and lunch (not open for dinner). Good service, good prices, good food. Waitresses have worked there for decades. Mix of Japanese and Hawaiian food.
Good food, good prices, hearty servings. Atmosphere is laid back and relaxed. Service is fast and the people are nice and friendly. Kids welcomed. Outside seating available, but faces a street traffice.
The French bread here is the closet to the French bread in Paris. Not exactly the same, but pretty close. The baguette is crispy on the outside, supple in the inside. Plus, their pastries are pretty good too.
Cozy cafe located on a main street. Besides coffee, smoothies are good. Only downside is that the seating faces street traffic. Baristas are friendly and atmosphere is laid back.
OK, not as good as my mom's .. but the best I've tasted in LA. The chicken is deep fried in some pressurizer, not on a stove top. So the chicken is moist but not greasy. Good cold or hot.
Their house special is their chicken (tebasaki or half/quarter chicken). Special seasoning that is unbelievably fantastic. We've been ordering this chicken since 1990s and it hasn't changed. Very unique seasoning that you can't get anywhere else.
This small, always crowded restaurant is worth all the waiting. The food is delicious!! I always love to order fried calamari as an appetizer. The sushi is yummy and the slice of fish is huge like it's supposed to be.
