LA Weekly's Description

Of the many ways to translate the flavor of sputtering hardwood into meat, the Japanese art of kushiyaki is perhaps the most efficient, a straightforward gesture of toasting skewers of marinated protein over a hot, fragrant charcoal fire until the surfaces brown, the smoke insinuates its way into the flesh, and the chicken tails, or bacon-wrapped asparagus, or bits of beef tongue cook to a luscious medium-rare: the center barely touched by the heat and the outside brown and crisp. As practiced at Shin-Sen-Gumi, a mini-mall kushiyaki bar on the southern edge of Gardena, the process is extraordinarily precise, with each delicate meatball, each chunk of chicken thigh, cooked just enough and no more, and with an entire busy restaurant being fed from a grill that looks not much bigger than two or three steel shoeboxes welded end-to-end. Recommended dishes: gyoza, hakata ramen.

Tips from foursquare

  • Angie L. on 01/21/10

    The combo that comes with the fried rice is excellent, hits the spot every single time!

  • Jeff S. on 05/18/11

    go early or late at night its usually packed most of the time. especially dinner and weekends.

    Don't wear tight pants

  • Dao T. on 01/14/11

    You need to add Spicy Miso to make your ramen 10x better. Medium soup base and heavy oil makes the soup taste much better. Lunch special A-set is my favorite.

    Customize your ramen! Second best ramen restaurant in my opinion behind Santouka.
