Yakitori - Torihei in Torrance

Pau Hana!
(Work is Done)

I met up with a friend of a friend from Hawaii for Pau Hana, a Hawaiian Happy Hour.  We're both food marketers and enjoyed a couple of beers and some meat dishes.  Met up at a place I had never been, Torihei in Torrance for some yakitori and small plates.  "Yaki" is fire in Japanese and "tori" meaning chicken, so grilled chicken.

 Chicken Thighs

Has a lot of flavor, the only
seasoning is salt,
and grilled over a charcoal grill.

Chicken Wings

The wings are cut in a way that
they are flat and skewered,
again just seasoned with salt.

This is my favorite yakitori item!

Beef Short Ribs
AND the green onions made the dish.

This was our favorite item of the evening!

Beef Tongue

If prepare correctly, it's very tender
and a nice way to finish Pau Hana.

I did like this place and will be back,
maybe for more Pau Hana in the future.
It really makes a difference when the 
chef knows how to season the skewers
and cooks them to perfection.  Torihei
was a good experience...
