The old-fashioned-style Japanese restaurants are quickly disappearing from Los Angeles. I am not talking sushi here, but simple, home-style restaurants that serve sukiyaki, crunchy light tempura that melts in your mouth, great miso soup and teriyaki combination meals. Our favorite places like Masa in Pasadena have been sold and are no longer serving this kind of food. Perhaps you could do an article on good, simple Japanese food available around Los Angeles. We miss having several to choose from. Help!
