    Ok, so my wife threw one out that was a critical omission from my previous list:

    Indian food!

    Suggestions?

There are two very focused master chefs there: one expertly grilling skewers mainly of various chicken parts (yakitori), and the other stewing various things in a delicious & delicate dashi broth (oden). For more details and pictures, here are some local food blogger posts about the place:

    Torihei is great! I recently tried it and was very impressed.

    I mentioned Al Noor in Hawthorne in my previous list. Pakistani is similar enough to Indian. There is also Al Watan nearby, but I like Al Noor better.

    For "fast food" Indian, there are two places - Bombay Grocery in Lomita (on PCH near Cycle Gear). They make mostly vegetarian, but do offer meat dishes. The also make very good dosas. This place is very hole in the wall with a few tables to the side of the grocery area.

    India Treat - It is farther south on PCH in Lomita. This place is a "newer" version of Bombay Grocery (part restaurant/buffet - part grocery store) offering vegetarian dishes in mainly Nothern Indian style. They make a different dal everyday of the week and I haven't been disappointed yet. They are very capable in the kitchen. I'm addicted to their bhatura, chole, khorma and their amazing rice. It's as good as anything you would find in Artesia. The Mango Lassi are also good.


    If you are looking more of a sit down Indian. There is Tandoori Nites on Narbonne in Lomita. It's buffet-style and with emphasis on Punjabi cuisine (like tandoori chicken, tikka, etc...) there are also the usual British staples like Tikka Masala.

    Red Fort is another, similar, restaurant in Torrance, but I've never been there.

    Vegetarian: The Spot (Hermosa)

    I agree with the Rajun Cajun, husband is friends with the owner. Once or twice a year the owners mom will come down from Louisiana and host a Cajun cooking class!
    Damn, totally forgot about Havana Mania (its all about the Fufu de Yuca ...), but lets not kid ourselves, that's pretty much Hawthorne.

    Akbar on Aviation and Prospect in Hermosa Beach is great.

    Red Fort on Palos Verdes Blvd and Sepulveda is good too.

    Thank you to everyone who replied, I really appreciate it. Couple quick questions about places I used to go, are they still any good?

    Mama D's Manhattan Beach?

    Lucille's BBQ Torrance (at Del Amo Mall)

    Fresh Brothers Pizza Redondo (any of the other pizza places better?)

    Hoff's Hut Torrance (or is there better breakfast? I know Polly's on the Pier)

    Hoffs Hut rules, i would suggest the Hot N Tot on PCH in Lomita. There's a Mama D's in Hermosa now as well.
