Oumi Sasaya is an udon noodle restaurant located in Lomita, home to a large Japanese population. It was opened by its former owner in 2009 when there was a relatively small number of udon shops to be found in the Los Angeles area. It was bought by its current owners, a husband-and-wife team, in 2015 and was subsequently renovated.

One of the shop’s main points of emphasis is its use of Japanese-produced and homemade ingredients. Most of the ingredients used, from the bonito, dried sardines and kombu seaweed used for broth to the flour, vegetables and natto (fermented soybean paste), are all imported from Japan. The firm, substantial udon noodles are made daily from freshly kneaded dough. The soup is also made by hand using bonito, dried sardines and kombu seaweed. Since most of the selections on offer are homemade, the proprietors are confident in their ability to let customers with food allergies know exactly what goes into their dishes.

When the dishes are served, guests are first and foremost impressed by the sheer volume. With the philosophy that, in the United States, guests often prefer larger servings, the udon noodles are served at one-and-a-half times their normal serving size. One popular menu item, the Tororo Udon with Beef, features toppings including beef stewed in a slightly sweet sauce with a generous helping of grated yam, a soft-boiled egg, green onions and sesame seeds atop a generous helping of udon noodles. The yams are, of course, grown in Japan. The dish is set off with a bit of a spicy kick thanks to the addition of doubanjiang (a spicy bean sauce). In addition, the Shrimp Tempura and the Shrimp and Mochi Tempura Udon are also popular. The use of large-sized shrimp results in shrimp flavor that bursts in your mouth with each bite. The curry used in the Curry Udon is completely handmade from the curry stock onward.

In the evening, an à la carte menu is also available, featuring items such as salads and Japanese-style fried chicken as well as Udon-Suki, which is ordered ahead of time and cooked in a pot at your table. This shop offers guests a chance to enjoy authentic Japanese udon noodles and excellent dishes.
