Hawaiian Expats Are Dishing Out Addictive Island Faves in Torrance
When Big Island expats Bruce and Maile Goold opened Island Taste Café in Torrance this summertime, the South Bay’s close-knit Hawaiian neighborhood was stired. The couple’s Island Taste Grill was called among the very best areas in Las Vegas for rib-sticking loco moco and saimin noodles. Now you can sample those exact same home-style meals– from oxtail soup surged with “chili pepper water” to stir-fried sliced steak and onions– in a Torrance shopping center.
HOT OFFER: The Mixed Plate ($14) is a need to if you can’t choose simply one protein. Served with steamed rice and macaroni salad, sweet-salty glazed furikake chicken and smoky grilled kalbi form an addicting combination.
SHOT THIS: What’s a Hawaiian joint without poke? Island Taste uses a couple of ranges, however the most conventional is identified merely Hawaiian Design ($ 8 for a half pound): ahi tuna tossed with ogo seaweed, onions, ground kukui nuts, and red Hawaiian sea salt.
Island Taste Café, 16300 Crenshaw Blvd., Ste. 109, Torrance.
