For lunch, craved soba, so I dropped by this much-hyped about place in Downtown Torrance. It’s a self-service, standing soba shop, something pretty common in Japan. Order and pay first, help yourself to hot or cold tea, and even pour your own soba yu. No frills, just a nice atmosphere and quality food.

They import their buckwheat from Japan, and make the noodles fresh daily.

Indeed, as part of the Inaba group, the soba was pretty much the same as that served at I-naba and Ichimi Ann Rolling Hills. That means, fantastic. Of course, soba wasn’t the only thing I ordered.

Oyako Don. The egg had the right amount of runniness to it. YUM!

Battera Рmarinated mackeral box sushi. This can be ordered 2-, 4-, or 6-pieces at a time. I really only wanted 1 or 2, but I thought 4 would take a better picture. Ha!

Awesome lunch spot. For dinner or a date however, I think I’d rather pay more and go to Inaba. In any case, I’ll be back.

Tip: Cash only and street parking can be a bitch.
