There’s a new yummy spot in town and they’re called The Yummy Spot! The Yummy Spot Restaurant and Cafe is located in Torrance, California and offers gourmet tacos, pastas, salads and snacks.
Walking in the restaurant is not hard to like because it is so cute and cozy. There are pretty lights hanging above, comfy cute pillows on their benches and neat pop art and signs all aroundl!
Up front the restaurant gives complimentary chips and salsa. The chips are hot and fresh and best eaten right away. The salsa is fairly mild but can be made spicier upon request. By default, they give the red salsa but they will give green salsa if requested.
There’s three types of pastas served here. There is a Yummy Pasta with sirloin steak, a Carnitas Bolognese Pasta with braised pork and a Shrimp and Three cheese pasta. The Yummy Pasta and Carnitas Bolognese are mixed in tomato sauce while the Shrimp and Three cheese pasta is with white sauce. All pasta entrees are served with garlic bread and salad.
The salad is simple and is topped with tomatoes and croutons. The dressing is very yummy and definitely gives a lot of definition and flavor to salad. It has a good sweet flavor.
Out of the pasta entrees, I got to try the Shrimp and Three Cheese Pasta. I am a fan of white sauce and their version of version of white sauce is so creamy. I loved the mix of Fontana cheddar, parmesan and Chili flakes mixed in to. The side garlic bread was perfect when dipped in the sauce! The bread is buttery, full of garlic and perfectly crispy on the outside.
Aside from the pasta, I tried their gourmet tacos here as well! I tried the Carnitas Taco, the Vege Potato Taco and the Sesame Beef Taco.
The Carnitas Taco consisted of pork cilantro mayo, crema, lettuce, pickled onion, cilantro and cheddar. There’s a lot of cream in this little taco! The crema helped enhance the already flavorful braised pork! This was one good taco.
The Vege Potato Taco is a winning taco for vegetarians! It has spiced potato, red salsa, guacamole, creme, lettuce and tomato. i was a fan of the thick potato wedges!
The Sesame Beef Taco was my personal favorite! This had beef, sesame seeds, smoky napa cabbage, scallion and fried garlic! At first bite, the flavor of the sesame could be tasted instantly! There was a nice sweet aftertaste enhanced even more by the scallion and fried garlic. The beef is similar to Korean bbq.
My trip to Yummy Spot ended with one sweet treat via their beignets! Their beignets are so soft and fluffy! They serve these deep fried goodies fresh and hot with lots of powdered sugar. i got it with tropical sauce and strawberries! The tropical sauce is a good, sweet dip and the strawberries are fresh but even without these extras, the beignets alone are heavenly!
