Gaja Moc Restaurant Review

: One of the more interesting Japanese restaurant imports is the savory cook-it-yourself pancake concept called okonomiyaki, and a practitioner is Gaja Moc, located in a Lomita strip-mall. The Gaja menu is a long one, listing pork cutlet and spicy mussels, plus seafood steam pots, noodle bowls and the thin pancakes called monjya. Some of these dishes are intriguing, but first-timers shouldn’t bypass okonomiyaki. Batter-bolsterers include mushrooms and spicy shrimp, plus the more daring beef tendon and squid. Try the modern mix, combining mixed seafood and pork. Don’t let the tabletop griddle go to waste. Cook it yourself: it’s more fun, and elevates your visit from meal to experience. And they don't leave you on your own; laminated instructions guide each step. After cooking the okonomiyaki, top it with semi-sweet red soy sauce, mayonnaise, seaweed or dried fish flakes. A good way to experience this style of eating is at lunch, when a trio of mini versions is on special. Lunch also offers a select 50-percent off menu. For dessert, there are parfaits, mochi ice creams, and shaved ice topped with condensed milk, fruit and bean pastes.
