The name is Asakuma, but the quality is not the same as the original Brentwood restaurant. Don't get me wrong, the sushi is still good, it just isn't Asakuma good.
Where else can you get your car washed and spend $20 for steak and eggs for breakfast? The steaks are indeed expensive, but this dining car is well worth the price. Try out happy hour and taste some of their great food. Bring your wallet and expect it to leave a bit lighter, but you will be pleased with the food. This is one of the few places that is really worth the price.
This old style steakhouse is the sister of the original PDC over on Lucas street downtown. It's pricey, but the steaks are incredible and the portions good. Not as good as the original, but still very good.
The takeout version of the more famous and quite frankly better Asakuma in Brentwood. This Asakuma doesn't measure up to its older sibling. Oh, the sushi is good, but that's about it. Named anything else, you wouldn't go.
They've got great shmears (cream cheese plus something), and their bagel sandwiches are quite good. There's often a line in the morning, and for good reason, the bagels are great.
An independent ice cream place in West Side Pavillion, Ice N Cream makes you want for Ben and Jerry's, Hagendaas, or Baskin Robins. There's nothing to like here, but it's the only ice cream available at the mall.
Once was enough. There's nothing really bad about Thai Talay, but nothing special either. Walking distance from LMU, one would think that if it were any good, Thai Talay would be crawling with college students. It's not, probably because it is just very average.
A really nice bagel place, next to Jamba Juice, which is quite convenient. The breakfast bagels, along with a Jamba, make a nice little meal. Dozen bagels are a bit pricey, but worth it.
The location is great. Well, that's about all that is good here. It's a nice place to eat breakfast, but only for the location. The food is average at best, and the prices are not competitive. Come once and enjoy the view, but you won't come back for the food.
Want a huge pizza? Go to Beach Pizza, but be ready to eat. The pizzas are good, but what is noteworthy is the absolute size. Truly amazing. I'm partial to the thin crust, but I hear the thick is good, as well.
