Home >About us
Making our United States debut is an inventive new twist to Japanese cuisine. Torafuku Japanese restaurant,(already a smash hit with three locations in Tokyo, Japan) will be located next to the Westside Pavilion shopping center in West Los Angeles, and is poised to become the first of its kind by introducing "Kamado" cooked rice. The Kamado, weighing over 500 lbs., is an iron metal pot inserted into stone earthen ovens. These have been used for centuries in Japan to cook rice and will be used for the first time here in the U.S. Torafuku will exclusively feature this rice made from the Kamado and an exciting new menu selection to complement it.
The Kamado originated in ancient Japan, approximately 2000 years ago during the Kofun Era. It consisted of a large earthen oven with a metal pot that was horizontally inserted, then heated from the bottom using wood for fuel. The Kamado, being quite versatile, was used to cook rice and other foods, as well as to boil miso (soy bean) soup and hot water for tea. Over time, the Kamado evolved into steel rice cookers inserted into a stone frame, like the one you see here at Torafuku, known as the Ishikamado. It is through the use of the Ishikamado, where the Japanese perfected the art of cooking rice.
We can host a party of up to 16 people in our private room. Or, rent our whole restaurant for larger parties up to 80 people.
