Japanese Food Festival, Nov. 8, 2009 - Torrance


Pics from Japanese food festival in Torrance. Admission was $5 a person. This festival was from 10am to 6pm, we got here about 2:30pm, and we saw some people were already leaving and the ramen seemed to be already sold out. There were long lines for takoyaki/yakisoba. We tried 3 different foods from different stalls, but all of them weren't so good. Nothing delicious, just OK. Very disappointed. Also I had a stomach pain after finish eating food. We left in 1 hour, not worth coming here, especially if we are paying for it. I should stick with Mitsuwa's food festivals.

making mochi

Fresh mochi: 2 for $2. One is kinako and other one is mitarashi flavor (sweet soy sauce flavor). Unfortunately, it was just OK. Tasted very different from the fresh mochi I had (many times) in Japan.

Gaja Okonomiyaki $5

This was also just OK. It was very thin, there was cabbage and ginger, I didn't see anything else in it, but I guess that's because they are just making as a samples. Maybe it'll be better if you order at the restaurant with seafood and bacon in it.

tsukune (chicken balls) from Shinsengumi

2 skewers for $3 (your choice of yakitori or tsukune)
Again, unfortunately, this was also just OK. It was tasty outside, but inside was greasy.
