Ichimi Ann Bamboo Garden, Japanese Soba Noodle Restaurant

       Last Sunday, my husband and I went to Torrance to have lunch. That day, we were going to Maruhide Uni Club, the best sea urchin restaurant in L.A., but their lunch seats had been already booked up before we arrived. That's why we decided to go to another restaurant. We finally went to Ichimi Ann Bamboo Garden, a Japanese soba noodle restaurant. It had been years since we went there last time.

       They serve many kinds of soba noodle. They serve authentic soba noodle with pretty reasonable price, but it looked like that the price of their menu became a few dollar expensive than years ago.

       My husband ordered their lunch combo, cold soba noodle and a mentaiko and okaka bowl.

        Their soba noodle was perfect as usual. :)

       This mentaiko tasted so good! When it comes to mentiako, I am pretty picky about it because I grew up in Fukuoka, where is famous for mentaiko. I thought that their mentiako was pretty high-end one. In addition, the okaka, which is bonito flakes mixed with soy sauce, was super good!

        I ordered this tempura bowl. The deep-fried shrimps were pretty big. I liked their deep-fried twisted chili. These days, I've also often cooked tempura at home. :)

       What I liked this restaurant was that they serve soba yu and some tea for free. Soba yu is the warm water that boiled soba noodle. Drinking soba yu is good for your health because it has protein and vitamin from soba noodle.

       The soba yu tasted rich and slightly salty. I also enjoyed having brown rice tea. :)
