OMG!!! Kagura is one of my favorite places EVER! I had no idea they had Omurice! Is i just for lunch only?
Great review as usual, @Chowseeker1999!
Indeed it’s even better in Tokyo!
Is Torrance far superior to the one on Sawtelle?
Thanks. Yah, I think their Omu-Rice is only available at lunch. We order it once in a while, let me know what you think of it next time you go.
I’m a big fan of Kagura and I didn’t really care for Kimukatsu as much, tho it’s fine for local fare as I’m a Westsider.
Beautiful, thanks for this. I want to eat that.
Westside? Shaking head while wagging finger at you…
After seeing @Chowseeker1999’s (excellent as usual) write-up, this has refreshed my mind about how good the Torrance location is and how comparatively second hat the El Segundo location is.
Which cut do you like the most at Kagura? Thanks.
Thanks @J_L for the confirmation. That’s good to know.
My friend from Tokyo also said that the Kimukatsu there even cooks a custom “mini Kamameshi”-type of pot of Steamed Rice just for your table when you go (which sounds awesome)!
Yes, I would say so as well. I agree with @ogawak.
Definitely the millefeuille.
I also like to stop by and get some of their crab cream croquets to go.
How did I not know about this place?? I need to go here ASAP – pork cutlet is one of my favorite things to eat!
Looks awesome! How much for the pork cutlets?
Definitely definitely the millefeuille.
Thanks. And thanks for the warning on the El Segundo location; we’ve never made it out there, but it’s good to know we don’t have to.
The various Kurobuta / Berkshire Pork Cutlets Lunch Sets (with Soup, Steamed Egg Custard, 4 Different Small Veggie Dishes and Rice) goes for $16.95 - $17.95.
The Free-Range Chicken Cutlet Lunch Set goes for $13.95.
And you can order a Mix and Match Lunch Set (but smaller portions of the Cutlet) where you choose a Cutlet and another item from a B Set (Crab Cream Croquette, Fish Fry, Oyster Fry) for $13.95.
You can also order the Cutlets a la carte for slightly cheaper (forgot to write it down). Enjoy!
Confirming that as well.
Kagura Torrance has this, too. I believe it was on the very last page of the menu. Maybe it’s not available at lunch? It takes around 40min, if I recall correctly. Worth every minute.
This is their Kinoko Kama-meshi that I had…
