Today is a rather gloomy day here in Southbay. A light grey haze, that would be more commonly known as “daytime” back home in Seattle, has blanketed our skies in El Segundo. I’m on my lunch break writing this. I realized I don’t post up the sugary pics near as much as I should. There is a plethora of Asian cuisine… but what about dessert!!?
Well friends… here is your remedy. Me, Steve and a few friends took my sister to Musha in Torrance while she was in town visiting from Kent. The seating at this izakaya are long wooden benches (at the Torrance location) or curtained mat rooms (at the Santa Monica location). The Asian tapas choices are aplenty… either order desserts first or save room in advance!
Dessert two was their chocolate lava cake, served on a plate zig-zagged with rich fudge syrup. The striped straws are thin cookies with a layer of chocolate on the inside. The vanilla ice cream and whipped cream is lighter and not the Von’s/Safeway version. The little crispy flakes that look like corn cereal are crumbled almond cookies. These were sharable portions but not overly portioned. Two were perfect for our group of five. Especially after our kobe beef, yellowtail, cheese risotto, salmon, fried chicken, and ebi mayo mayo!
