Some very reliable sources who have deep roots in Hawaii tipped me off to a newish place in northern Torrance called Island Flavor Cafe, which is related to the original location in Las Vegas.
I’ve been twice and loved the food both times. My favorite dish is the furikake chicken, which consists of lightly battered and fried chunks of chicken covered in a slightly sweet glaze that has bits of furikake in the batter. It’s a unique dish that is really original and delicious.
I also got the loco moco katsu chicken, which was good although the rice was overcooked. If you’re in the area, Island Flavor is worth checking out. Just be aware that portions are large, so order carefully!
