Back to the birthday celebration, we went to RA Sushi Bar Restaurant in Torrance. I rated this place 3.5 to 4 stars out of 5. I picked this restaurant because it’s closed to our house and they have pretty decent sashimi and rolls. Plus, I know they have high chairs available. This place is spacious and usually not packed. Also, it’s in the Del Amo Fashion Center, so, there are plenty of parking spaces available. Of course, there are many other (better) sushi restaurants to choose from in Torrance if you don’t have to consider high chair availability, wait time and parking distance.
Let’s see what we have ordered…
The Set lunch is good value, but the fish wasn’t top quality. I would rather order a la carte next time.
The Uni sushi are great, very fresh and sweet. Didn’t try the other 2.
Good quality, better than those from the set lunch.
Not bad, tuna is spicy enough. However, I think I can make the roll prettier that this!
Shrimp Tempura Udon
The Udon is very flavorful, lots of bay scallops, carrots and mushrooms make the broth very sweet.
This is one of my favorite, the dipping sauce is great too, a little sweet and a little tangy. The beef is fresh and melt in your mouth. The asparagus adds a little bit crunch.
This is my favorite of the day. Fresh, sweet, melt in your mouth goodness.
So, what’s the damage……drum roll please…
Just a tip for you, if you want to try RA, go during their happy hours. You get discount on beers and sake (not sure how much though), appetizers and rolls are 50% off! That’s not a bad deal at all.
We had a great time. I’m sure my little ones enjoyed the lunch, too. There were lots of laughter, noise and mess from them. Nothing is better than spending quality time with family. (Too bad my hubby couldn’t join us this time.) To me, food is the most delicious when shared with family and love ones. Happy Birthday again, Daddy! I love you.
