Whenever I feel like having Japanese style sweets, such as Anmitsu (red beans, fruits, and sweet syrup), Shaved ice, and Fruit Perfeit, I go toKoraku Restaurant Torrance. They have varieties of menu, including Ramen Noodles, Fried Rice, Chinese lunch and dinner sets, Spinatch noodles, Anmitsu, Fruit Parfait, Ice Cream, Shaved Ice, Milk Shakes, Melon Sodas, Coffe Jel-lo, and etc. They don't take any break between Lunch and Dinner time, and they are open until 3 AM or so.
For Anmitsu, they have Anmitsu, Shiratama Anmitsu (with white rice cakes), Shiratama Kintoki Anmitsu (with white rice cakes and red beans), Shiratama Kintoki Anmitsu Ice Cream (with white rice cakes, red beans, and Vanilla ice cream). I usally get Shiratama Kintoki Anmitsu Ice Cream.
Also I often get their Shaved Ice during hot Summer days. They have varieties of Shaved Ice, such as Strawberry, Milk, Melon, Uji ( green tea ), Uji Kintoki (green tea syrup with red beans), Shiratama Uji Kintoki (green tea syrup with red beans and white rice cakes), Strawberry with Fresh Fruits, and etc.
Often there are groups of high school athelets having late lunch and sweets with their coatch. They eat a lot.
I upload some photos above and below. Enjoy!
There are Koraku Restaurants in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles and in Sherman Oaks as well. Please see links above.
