Teriyaki Chicken Sandwich

The food here is always tasty. From the teriyaki chicken sandwich to the salads, and you cannot and I mean cannot forget their bakery items. It's not just the food that is fantastic, it's also the employees. They are always friendly, even when things are crazy busy there. I say your next meal should come from here. Go now! Those bakery items go fast.

Chicken Katsu

Very good, tasty and breading was just right. Unfortunately we did not get any katsu sauce for the chicken.

Fried Noodles

It's hard for me to order anything else because the fried saimin with vegetables is soooo good! We live over 70 miles away, so coming here is a treat and there's nowhere near us that makes this dish. That plus a sliced of the Haupia or Paradise cake is the perfect meal.

Kalua Pork

Hands down the best kalua around here! Consistently good, tasty and freshly made. I can make 2 meals out of this, for me, as i eat a lot of rice with it. Recommended.

Breakfast Burrito

I worked around the corner and would stop by for a burrito and coffee in the mornings. I work a lot further now and I still make the effort to drive over and get a burrito with spam from time to time. Once you have a spam breakfast burrito you will understand why everyone loves them!!

Breakfast Loco Moco

I like both places. I like the Local Place because I live in North Torrance and it's a nice and close place for breakfast. I like King's Hawaiian if I'm going for Sunday dinner with my family and in-laws. I really like both places bakery selections. The people who work there are always nice and friendly.

Breakfast Sandwich

The best breakfast sandwich I've ever had! It's so good I can't have just one. Everything I've tried from their menu is delicious but this might be my favorite.

Lau Lau, Kalua Pork, Lomi Salmon

I usually go to the Torrance place for dinner after Red Cross platelets donation but I start going to the Local Place in Gardena to pick up the take-outs because of COVID-19 and it is closer to me. The food quality of both places are good and consistent I have to cut down on the bakeries due to my age that I have to watch out my blood sugar. To resist the temptation of their bakeries is hard!

Mochi Donuts

Mochi donuts were scrumptious! I prefer those to regular donuts which are too sweet.

Miso Salmon with Spicy Mayo and Vegetables

Excellent dish! I do not usually like spicy dishes but the mayo on the side really puts the flavor over the top. Dish would not be the same without it! Never disappointed!! Consistently good. Yum!!

Love, love this cake! A friend brought it up to a party in San Francisco and I fell in love. I am making a tradition of picking one up when I drive home from Palm a Springs to San Francisco. The first time was last year and more recently, yesterday! It will be a time honored tradition!

Chicken Katsu Curry

The Katsu was absolutely amazing. What surprised me was their fried rice: it was so flavorful and packed with toppings. We had a phone order and it was ready when I arrived. Definitely will be back!

Miso Salmon with Spicy Mayo and Vegetables

The best dish ever!! Spicy mayo and veggies compliment the salmon perfectly. It is so addicting. No lemon or lime required. Just an extra side of the spicy mayo, please....

Chicken Katsu

The chicken katsu is just the right amount of flaky and tender at the same time. Goes well with any side dish and is very warm and tastes better than other chicken steak out there Love the golden crunch to this fun comfort food.

Loco Moco

This is one of the BEST loco moco's I've ever had! Double awesome that this is a historical place and a sense of pride for someone living in Torrance as many people consider this place one of Torrance's special, historical places! Keep doing what you are doing and we appreciate all that you do! Thank you!!!
