"Rice" deserves the greatest kudos, and lots more of them! It is a truly excellent Japanese macrobiotic restaurant that offers heavenly tasting unique, creative, quality small dishes. Most especially, if you are NOT an avid, experienced stay-at-home macrobiotic cook--like I am NOT, "Rice" offers a unique change from the same old/same old macrobiotic choices that I know how to cook and that I find in most vegan restaurants. The garlic "toro with crispy kale" is to die for. The crispy kale literally melts in your mouth, and pared with the warm blue fin sashimi...well it's out of this world. So were all the other dishes we had. The servers were especially adept at helping us order by recommending the most popular dishes and advising how many to order. A much-needed quality macro restaurant in the (largely) health-food desert that comprises the South Bay.
