  1. We made it at a restaurant I used to work at (01 in Thai town) that has since closed. Try making it yourself with wasabi and kewpie mayo.
    Good luck!

    1. formosa cafe on santa monica just west of la brea - i think they come with the ribs - yum!

      1. I believe I've had them at Mako but it might have been as part of a special. Edited to say that I just checked on they're on the menu at Mako as part of the filet migon dish there.

            Had them at the Malibu Beach Inn hotel dining room - very expensive but everything was fabulous.

            I'll have to second Mako, excellent.

          3. Not exactly but maybe you're in a general phase, they have wasabi sweet potato salad at M Cafe that's pretty damn good, and you can get it to go if you're not feeling the whole sit down thang. Good luck!

            1. e3rd Steakhouse has wasabi mashed potatoes. I can't vouch for them as I hate wasabi.
