This week's top 10 food list? Japanese noodle shops in Torrance (and yes, with a little spill over into Gardena). Before we reveal the list, we thought we'd give you the runners-up. You gotta love the drumroll portion of the program. If you take issue with the list, or its organizing principle; or if you think we've committed an egregious error in forgetting Your Favorite Noodle Shop, by all means let us know, either by commenting below or sending a tweet to @LAWeeklyFood.
