Only at JAPONICA! California Style Sushi

JAPONICA is a Sushi / Ramen / Izakaya Japanese restaurant, loved by locals since 2002. The izakaya restaurant with a laid-back yet refined atmosphere serves not only the best Japanese dishes like sushi and sashimi but also multi-national dishes.

JAPONICA’s California-style sushis are some tastes that cannot be enjoyed in Japan. Take, for example, “White lightning,” an albacore and tempura white fish dish that is their bestseller, or “Final Fantasia”, a fine artwork and the chef’s recommendation. Their nigiri sushi menu is highly recommended, like the “A-5 Wagyu Sushi” that melts on your tongue. They serve a variety of creative rolls and nigiri sushis coupled with their homemade soy sauce called “SADA SMOKED SOY SAUCE.” While conventional soy sauce can overpower the delicate taste of raw fish with its strong and salty flavor, SADA SMOKED SOY SAUCE is blended with sake, mirin, and dashi broth in the perfect ratios to produce an umami (savory) taste.

The classy and moody ambiance is truly an ideal setting for romantic dates, and it creates the perfect vibe for a lovely evening out. The restaurant is also the perfect setting to share a variety of dishes, drinks, and laughs among friends.

JAPONICA doesn’t simply specialize in one style of Japanese cuisine, but also provides customers a chance to enjoy familiar favorites such as tempura, sashimi, and more. A must try is the “Original TanTan Ramen”, undoubtedly one of the popular choices. Not to mention, JAPONICA serves various labels of the finest sake, beer, wine, and more to accommodate almost every taste.
JAPONICA is located in Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach. Both locations have a cozy atmosphere with a mixture of an American pub and Japanese izakaya styles. If you need recommendations, their friendly staff are more than welcoming to help. This spring, JAPONICA will be opening its new location in El Segundo — Workers are needed in all locations for all positions!
