Noodleheads Take Note: Mitsuwa’s Gourmet Food Fair is Coming

If you're into pork broth like we are, then you're no stranger to Diakokuya's powerhouse bowls of tonkatsu. You can order it with double back fat, if you're really up for a caloric splurge. It's worth it. Daikokuya (Photo courtesy of Daikokuya)

If you're a fan of noodles, or Japanese food in general, you'll want to listen up. Starting Thursday and running through the weekend, Mitsuwa Marketplace will be holding their annual Gourmet Food Fair.

The festival will go down at the Torrance, San Diego and Costa Mesa stores, featuring regional Japanese eats like ramen bowls from Yokohama, fried octopus from Osaka, and green tea sweets from Kyoto.

Since ramen has become the soup du jour so in the world of L.A.'s food trends, you'll likely want to slurp some noodles at the Torrance store, where Kenji Chiba of the famed KAMOME-SHOKUDO shop in Yokohama will be serving up his pure pork broth base.

Other dishes featured at the fest include fried octopus, fresh soba noodles, savory manju, crab sushi, mushroom croquettes, and sweet pumpkin waffles. Sounds like quite the international feast.
