Hello hello everyone! After our long hiatus during our book-making, Undrgrnd OC is finally back!
Today we visit King’s Hawaiian Bakery and Restaurant in Torrance, a little ways from Orange County, but definitely within driving distance. This is the same King’s Hawaiian that makes the delicious sweet rolls you find in supermarkets around the country, like Costco or Albertson’s. Here at the restaurant, they freshly bake their delicious breads, cakes, and pastries. The cakes are honestly the most amazing thing I have ever had. I don’t know what they do, but their cakes are as light and fluffy as a cloud, and the topping as delicious as a perfectly ripe peach.
Now onto what I think is the better part of this bakery-restaurant combo-the restaurant. When you walk into the place, the decor looks right out of the 60s, with an old school diner bar and booths. However, while others may think it is outdated, it creates a welcoming, comforting environment. The menu has Hawaiian favorites like loco moco, a hamburger patty, fried egg, and gravy over rice, and kalua pork. There are other breakfast favorites as well, like eggs benedict, with a little hawaiian twist. The staff here are amazing as well, always having a small and being polite and kind, despite how crowded the restaurant is. All of the charm of Hawaii comes through this restaurant.
If you ever are riding around Torrance or LA or even OC, and are in the mood for some of the best comfort food around, be sure to stop by King’s Hawaiian!
