Alternatives to Spoon House for Japanese (wafu) spaghetti / pasta?

Is Spoon House the only place in town for wafu spaghetti? This would be western pastas topped with Japanese ingredients - cod roe, bonito, seaweed, sea urchin, natto, shiso, etc.

        Gaja Moc in Lomita is known mainly for okonomiyaki and monjayaki, but they also do wafu spaghetti.

        They also do a soup with spaghetti noodles with ika and mentaiko added to the broth. That might be a change of pace you'd like. Last time I was there for lunch, they had a special where you get a big bowl of this soup with spaghetti noodles plus okonomiyaki made in the kitchen (not at your table) for around $6.
