Omakase @ Hirose

I had a dinner with my girlfriend at Hirose in Torrance. I have been there only for lunch and have wanted to try out dinner since I always love what they serve.

While waiting for her, I ordered draft beer. Wow, it is a perfect foam which is rarely seen here in US.

Edamame too.

We ordered $70 sushi bar omakase.
