Cheap Eats: Hawaiian


Icon by Peter Hoey

The Loft
The size of the traditional Hawaiian plate lunch is the stuff of legend, with portions large enough to feed Polynesian warriors. At the Loft in the South Bay, long tables and roomy booths accommodate crowds that assemble after soccer, softball, or basketball league action. The $10.77 kalua pork plate is a standout, the macaroni salad notable for the use of egg, the cabbage salad spiked with ramen noodles. The char siu chicken is a feast in pink. » 23305 Hawthorne Blvd., Torrance, 310-375-4051.
