先月日曜の晩、「ZENYA」で遅い夕飯しました。トーレンス南部ローリングヒルズプラザのNijiyaの並びにあります。群馬県四万温泉の老舗旅館「四万やまぐち館」の味がLA上陸！とか。今年7月開店。 （雑誌「ライトハウス」広告より/Ad from US Lighthouse.com ↓ ) "ZENYA Restaurant" opened in Torrance last July. We went there for a late dinner on Sunday last month. It's located near Nijiya Market at Rolling Hills Plaza mall in south Torrance. An ad on US Lighthouse.com said, "The tastes of "Shiman Yamaguchi-kan" at Shiman Hotsprings, a long established Inn in Gunma prefecture, Japan came to LA!"
They have Rib Eye Stakes, Grilled Salmon, Grilled Chicken, and Pork Sauteed. You have a choice of Teriyaki Sauce or ZENYA Sauce for all of them. Steamed Rice is available at $1 more.
表にディスプレーしてあったメニュー。 This menu was displayed outside near the entrance. ランチとディナー両方が載ってます。お酒や焼酎も充実してるみたいです。串焼きや前菜もある居酒屋でもあり、和洋食、ラーメンなど豊富なメニューです。
It shows both Lunch and Dinner menu. They have varieties of Japanese Sake and Shotsu Vodka. Their menu includes Kushiyaki Skewers and Appetizers for Izakaya. They also serve Japanese Food, Beef Steaks, Grilled Salmon, and Ramen Noodles---varieties of Menu.
レンコンの串揚げ $1 Skewer of Lotus Root あつあつでさくさくしてました。野菜の串揚げはほぼ1本1ドルです。毎回サラダが少し盛り付けてあるのが嬉しい。
It was deep fried, hot and crispy. Most Vegetable Skewers are $1 per skewer. It comes with a small Salad each time, and we like it.
Authentic Hakata Noodles are used. The broth soup is good but little different from the authentic Hakata Ramen taste. It tasted as if they added a little bit of Oil to the Pork broth Soup afterwords. (I'm from Fukuoka, the Mecca of Hakata Ramen, so I'm very picky. Sorry.) They are not using any MSG nor artificial ingredients.
塩ラーメン SHIO Ramen Regular $7.95, Large $8.95, Half $5.50 チャーシューの他にプリプリの海老ワンタンが2個入ってます。塩ラーメンの麺は平たいきしめん風。
There are two Shrimp Wantons and 2 Slices of Char-Shu BBQ Pork. The noodles are flat like linquini.

I lined up to get his auto-graphs on the books I purchased and finished it around 10 pm. My friend and I went to have a dinner later after that.
