A small restaurant in a big Lomita strip mall, Hikari is a Japanese BBQ spot where you eat Japanese chicken carbonara and grill a whole lot of meat over hot coals. It’s a small space, and the wood dividers between each table make you feel like you rented a private room for free. The menu is pretty big, but the staff are there to help you decide which cuts of meat to get. Feel free to skip the appetizers and order an extra plate of the very good hanging tender cut (similar to hanger steak) instead.
