Not to be confused with the California rotary youth club of the same name, RYLA is a Japanese and Taiwanese restaurant in Hermosa Beach. Unlike most restaurants that sit a few thousand feet from a coastline, Ryla falls into the Dark And Sexy category. The candlelit dining room is loud enough for you to identify which R&B song is playing, but not so loud that people wouldn’t notice you singing along. It’s run by a husband-and-wife duo whose credits include stints at Fishing with DynamiteArthur J, and MB Post. The menu is unique, packed with Hokkaido milk bread smeared with tobiko nori, ox tongue curry rice, black bass in a lime coconut broth, and brown butter mochi cake.
