The South Bay has its fair share of excellent Japanese restaurants. Triple T being the stereotypical Taiwanese Japan-o-phile, feels right at home here. Why do Taiwanese people love everything Japanese? I have no idea, but it’s like they were brainwashed from the womb to worship anything and everything “made in Japan.” If you’re reading this, and you’re a true Taiwanese at heart, then you know this is true! Anyways, I digress. This is a food blog here, so on to the food…
Oumi Sasaya is solid udon oriented joint, but we had to have some starters to kick things off. I think this was a standard amuse bouche for everyone. Nothing really spectacular here.
Fried Garlic Chicken Wings
You can’t wrong with wings.
Just what you would think it to be, sweet corn, battered and fried crispy.
I love variety, so nabeyaki always provides this. This was a gigantic serving and scorching hot.
Cold Udon with Shrimp & Mochi Tempura
I didn’t get to try this, but Smooth Obturator seemed happy.
I personally only like curry on rice, but Triple T seemed pleased with this.
My apologies for the relatively terse descriptions, but Oumi Sasaya isn’t a place that warrants a lot of words. It’s a solid place that serves a traditional style of udon and various side dishes. Is it spectacular mind blowing and you should drive all the way out to frickin’ Lomita for a singularly amazing experience? No, it is most certainly NOT that place. But if you’re in the area and craving some feel good Japanese udon, than consider Oumi Sasaya.
