Sushi Nozomi Torrance, CA

Sushi is one of my favorite foods. I never get tired of it. Maybe it’s because of how pretty it looks, and how good it tastes. Whatever the case, I’m always up to try a new sushi place. When I came across a list of the top 10 restaurants in the South Bay & saw a sushi place was on it, I of course had to give it a try & scratch off another restaurant on the list.

Nozomi is located in a strip mall close to the Old Torrance area but don’t let that fool you. I walked in around 11:30 and it was already buzzing with diners, people picking up take out and a few tables were reserved too. That alone made me look forward to my meal.

The lunch menu had your usual combo meals, tempura, salads, and of course, sushi. Food was a little pricy, but that’s to be expected at a Japanese restaurant anyhow. Ever review I’d seen so far raved about their sea urchin, so I had to try it out.

It was served with some miso soup, which was slightly different than the ones I was used to since it was served with carrots instead of tofu, but I’m all up for variety. A small salad also came with the meal.

I ordered the sea urchin, crab, and salmon roe dish that was served atop a warm bed of sushi rice. Everything was so fresh. The roe had a slight saltiness to it and the crab was very tender. The sea urchin was very creamy. All of these blended so well with the rice. I really enjoyed my lunch, which hit the spot without leaving me too full. I’m eager to try the rest of their sushi dishes.
