I’ll finally be making a short trip to L.A. at the end of August after being away all year. Limited days means I won’t be able to fit in nearly as many places as I’d like to (plus I’m looking forward to home cooking!), but I do plan some meals out, keeping it fairly local.
Karuba’s Yardy Kitchen in Inglewood caught my eye on Yelp, a new Jamaican restaurant. Anyone try it? It’s nearby and I love a good escovitch fish:
Definitely plan to try Little Fatty in Mar Vista as my first meal off the plane. I haven’t been before and am a fairly light eater (one entree, one shared app, and one shared dessert). I’m thinking of getting the signature Sunday gravy, unless there’s another can’t miss entree. Since there’s only one dessert on offer, that choice will be easy!
Ichimi Ann Bamboo Garden in Torrance is also on my list for ume shiso soba. I’ve been to Inaba before and enjoyed my meal there, but soba is what I’m craving. Is there another stellar ume shiso dish in the Torrance/Gardena area that I should consider instead of Ichimi Ann?
Meeting a friend in El Segundo for lunch, so I may recommend trying Workshop Enoteca, since the review on here seemed to rate it highly.
