Izakaya Bincho | South Bay | Asian, Japanese | Restaurant
At this Japanese restaurant in Redondo Beach that specializes in small plates, one of the standout dishes is the agedashi tofu by chef Tomo Ueno. A delicate treat often overlooked at Japanese izakayas, every batch is made to order: A few pale cubes of silken tofu are lightly dusted with batter and fried until they're surrounded by crisp golden shells. A ladle of slightly-sweet dashi broth and a handful of snowy shaved mountain yam, dried seaweed and diced green onion grace the top. Chef’s choices on the menu also include braised pork belly, spicy sausage and black swine rolls.
