Japanese kushiage hits Torrance with crunchy, fried mochi and cheese balls, $1 skewers and fried sweet shrimp on a stick. Lovers of this cooking technique head here to get a taste of executive chef Hiro Miura's savory treats like fried gingko nuts and fried pumpkin coated with panko, a kushiage twist on Japanese bread crumbs. These fried skewers come cheap at three bucks or less for each spear, pierced with the likes of fried scallops, beef skirt steak and chicken. The late-night happy hour crowd revels at the sight of these single-meat bite snacks, pairing their fried chicken meatballs and fried miso-slathered eggplant with sake and cocktails.
