Adventures In South Bay Dining

So the little woman decided she wanted to eat sushi the other night, but she didn't want to go to any of our usual spots.  Normally, I'd have just gone to Kanpachi in Gardena, as it is the best Sushi I've had outside of Japan, but the wife wanted to try something new so the search was on.  Long story short, we wound up here:

Hakone Sushi






















Here we have Hakone Sushi in Torrance, CA.  Not the most impressive storefront on earth, but what the heck...  Anyway I refrained from taking pictures inside as people were trying to eat, just suffice it to say that the interior is similarly unimpressive.  Furthermore, they served Teriyaki, Tempura, and Udon along with Sushi.  Normally, this is a warning sign that the Sushi isn't that great.  A proper Sushi place should pretty much just serve Sushi in my opinion, but Hakone's Sushi was pretty darn good.  The real stand out was the Shiro Maguro (Albacore):

This was so good, I felt compelled to take a picture of it.  If you find yourself in Torrance, and you're in the mood for mid priced, quality Sushi, you should check out Hakone.

A Moment Of Silence...

Ladies and gentlemen, it is with a heavy heart that I bring the news of the passing of a true titan of cinema.  It seems that Rudy Ray Moore has Just joined the choir invisible.  Gaze upon his work, and know that there will be another like him...





RIP Rudy Ray Moore.
