Hamamori – Costa Mesa, CA 92626

Located on the top floor of South Coast Plaza’s Crystal Court, adjacent to the main mall is Hamamori, tucked into its very own little corner.

Microchips are placed underneath the plates so that each piece of sushi going out/around is timed perfect so that the food is always fresh. Kula recently had some renovations to their restaurant and it’s been great. Food […]
