Furaibo

Furaibo is a Japanese restaurant in Micro Tokyo (see below).  They have a fairly extensive menu and it’s very much more similar to a common type of Japanese restaurant in Japan unlike most Japanese restaurants in America.…

LaSalsa

Why this place has done was well has it has it beyond me.  The place sucks!   There are like 50 of them too.  I don’t get it.  I’ve tried it like 5 times at like 3 different locations and every time I’ve hated it.  Bland tasteless dry food.  Complete crap.  Blech!  Avoid this place …

Seoul Garden

This is also a Korean BBQ.  It’s much newer looking than Picnic Garden.  It’s a toss up which is better.  Some people like one and some people prefer the other.   It’s also $8 for lunch but drinks are separate.

Directions: From the 5 take Red Hill north.  Past the 1st light on the right …

California Roll Factory & Sushi

I was pretty skeptical of this place but I was pleasantly surprised.  First I must mention that California Roll and most of the other rolls you see in a sushi restaurant in California are not Japanese.  You won’t find a California roll in Japan nor a spider roll or a rainbow roll or a caterpillar …

Yaohan (now Mitsuwa)

Yaohan is a Japanese super market.  They have stores all over the world.   Most of the Yaohan’s have other stores inside in addition to the main super market.   For example the one in Costa Mesa has 4 fast food counters, a bakery, an small appliance shop, a travel agency, a gift shop, a …

Sanamulang Cafe

Sanamulang Cafe is in the middle of Thai Town.  I didn’t even know L.A. had a Thai town but it does.  I’m not sure what the boundaries of Thai Town are but Hollywood Blvd east of the 101 for a few miles seems to be the area.  Samamulang doesn’t seem to be a Thai restaurant.  …

Nozawa

Here is a great review of Nozawa by my friend Danny.…

Kim Tar

Kim Tar is the kind of Chinese restaurant that looks dirty.  I’d be surprised if they got a A or even a B from the health department.  Fortunately I’m one of those people that thinks those kind of places are the most delicious.  Kim Tar is a chain and there are several of them.  I’ve …

T.C.B.Y (The Country’s Best Yogurt)

T.C.B.Y. is a national chain of frozen yogurt / ice cream shops.  It’s nothing special, at least for me, but you’ve got to see this.  They have something they call "Rainbow Cream".  It’s vanilla ice cream with a TON OF FOOD COLORING!!!!   Of course kids love it.  I tried it and it was fine BUT, …

Todai

Todai is an all you can eat Japanese buffet.  Lunch is something like $10.   Not a bad price for all you can eat including sushi.  It’s not bad for an all you can eat place.

Directions: There is more than one of these too.  The one I’ve been to is here.   Take Beach …
