Rating: Great value, really good sushi
My friend Steven came recently to one of our Chinese dinners and wanted to “return the favor” by showing us one of his favorite sushi spots in Torrance.
Nozomi is in the heart of the vastness of little Japan that is Torrance.
This is a real deal sort of Japanese place with the tatami rooms, etc.
Yarom brought this wine, which was good for a new world (fake) chard.
Lunch specials come with a salad.
And miso soup (of course).
Sashimi Lunch (can’t remember if it was “special” or not). Good sized chunks of very fresh fish.
Sashimi Lunch. You get the nigiri and the cut roll.
Cut Toro Roll.
Uni and Ikura (salmon egg).
Toro, red snapper (tai), mackerel, crab (kani), clam, squid, and eel. All good stuff.
Negi-Toro ball. Chopped toro and green onions.
Toro handroll — one can never have too much toro.
Spicy salmon handroll. Nice and crunchy.
Overall, very good sushi. Not the best I’ve ever had, but super good for the price. If this were near me I’d come once a week for lunch — sadly it’s all the way down in Torrance.
Next door they had this crazy chestnut and bobo place.
And two types of fresh roasted chestnuts.
Plus the 85C for weird Taiwanese baked goods and coffee.
And the sea salt coffee.
