Sun & Moon cafe
For any who are interested in unorthodox California/Asian combinations, I highly recommend the Sun & Moon Cafe in Manhattan Beach. It's a Vietnamese/California/Japanese fusion place, and they do an excellent job at a rather modest price. The service is excellent though one of the servers has a rather poor commend of English. Four people dined very well for $107.00 including three glasses of wine and a tip... Try their version of a spicy California roll, the tempura calamari salad, the splendid "tofu steak"... heck, try anything, because it's all good. The family went there for dinner on Monday and I went back for lunch again today because I kept remembering how good it was.
