J.J. and I decided to take advantage of being in the South Bay neighborhood of Los Angeles where there are many Asian restaurants offering authentic cuisine of their country.
My Mother had mentioned Matsui as a great restaurant that serves traditional Japanese fine dining at a reasonable price.
We arrived at 11:30 am and at least 50% of the tables were occupied with mostly business clientele.
J.J. and I both decided on today's special lunch consisting of a plate of 4 pcs of sushi which J.J. enjoyed, a small plate of mixed green salad with Oriental dressing, a large prawn and assorted vegetable tempura, plus choice of udon (wheat noodle) or soba (noodle made of buckwheat) served ether hot or cold.
The lunch set was artfully presented and the individual dishes were professionally prepared. Our total bill came out to $30 inclusive of tip.
J.J. has already spotted a Korean restaurant for our next dining adventure.
