Seriously, my favorite breakfast burrito. It sounds odd but it's the most delicious thing ever!
Travel far for this cake!
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.
I love Love LOVE this cake and it is the greatest tasting thing ever!!!!!!!! I crave for it all the time now. Now I won't have the problem of finding the best cake for future birthdays and my future wedding cake! Yeppieeeeeee!!!
The macadamia nut creampie was delicious ,the Bavarian cream made it rich but not too sweet
So delicious and topped with flavor fresh fruits rich slice of paradise in your mouth. Will definitely order again!
AMAZING cake. I have it for my birthday every year. Its a light sponge cake with whipped cream frosting vs a heavy frosting.
It was great tasting, I was imaging to be in the Island but here Local in the States....
Excellent loco moco as usual. Great service by the Local Place crew.
Very good, tasty and breading was just right. Unfortunately we did not get any katsu sauce for the chicken.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
This is the most delicious thing ever!! All time favorite dessert and I highly recommend! It was very soft and fluffy. Perfect for the whole family
delicious cake and also fresh always good to enjoy
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.
is realy good
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 were scrumptious! I prefer those to regular donuts which are too sweet.
Mucho Aloha in every bite! Awesome as per usual 🤙🏻 Mahalo
The Hawaiian Paradise cake is AMAZING! It taste as good as it looks 😋
My go to breakfast for days I don't want to cook . The flavors In this dish are absolutely delicious, fresh and leaves you satisfied without feeling bloated . Love love love it . Highly recommend! Check out the pastries as well you won't regret it.
This is a great single serving to go cup like alternative to the paradise cake.
I would drive 30-45 minutes just for this cake!
This is a crazy great sandwich on Hawaiian bread to boot.
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!
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!
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....
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.
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!!!
Love their breakfast burritos! Everyone in my family orders one when we go. My favorite is with spam.
My favorite dish at local place, best of all other Hawaii restaurants locally.
this is one of my all time favorite things to order from here. so simple and so good! I am obsessed with the sauce : ) 10/10
