Quick Lunch in Torrance

I'm looking for some recommendations for a quick weekday lunch place in Torrance. I'd love some suggestions for Japanese but any other interesting ethnic type of food would do. Thanks!
For a selection of Asian food stalls try Mitsuwa on Western. El Pollo Inka is well known for good Peruvian. Kabab Curry serves some good Indian in south Torrance, especially for a suspiciously corporate location. Loft Hawaiian is the best, er, Hawaiian in Torrance.

If you go early you will be in and out otherwise a small wait for very good chinese food at rock bottom prices.. think SGV in the southbay with lunch prices cheaper than a Value Meal..
22922 Hawthorne Blvd, Torrance, CA 90505
21180 Hawthorne Blvd, Torrance, CA 90503
Seafood Town has overshadowed Seafood Port recently even though they're owned by the same people. Too many complaints I have heard about Seafood Port concerning hygiene and service. I have yet to try Seashore Restaurant on PCH and Calle Mayor and have heard many a good reviews about this place.
Kozan on Arlington just southeast of Torrance Blvd is pretty good for Japanese. A little more upcale is the Depot on the corner of Torrance and Arlington if you have more time. La Capilla for Mexican just south of that is also pretty good. If you're really hungry, try Onami's on Cabrillo and Carson. Used to be an old Todai.
Not ethnic, but for a quick sandwich or salad, and a small selection of hot offerings, try the Torrance Bakery. Very casual and quick (order at the register; nab a table inside or out). Sandwich w/chips and two cookies will set you back about $7.
