Jae Woo, owner of Otosan Sushi, joins Neil to ring in the New Year. Jae is a millennial who learned the restaurant business from her dad. Otosan, which means father in Japanese, is a collaboration between Woo and her father, a 40-year restaurateur who owns eateries in Portland, Oregon. Otosan is Woo’s love letter to her dad who she credits with teaching her everything about running a restaurant and, more importantly, how to connect with others through good food.
Take a listen to the full interview below.
While the take-out menu is intended to highlight some of Otosan’s signature dishes, such as Gyoza with house-made and pan-fried pork and beef dumplings and Kushi Katsu panko-fried skewers, the menu is designed to allow for quick execution and carryout. A few highlights on Otosan’s takeout menu include handroll flights, week to week specials that include a savory truffle avocado, spicy tuna, blue crab, yellowtail, jalapeno, baked crab or avocado.
Otosan is open daily for takeout from 11:30am-7:30pm and is located on the ground level at 2nd + PCH, Long Beach’s newest lifestyle center adjacent to Alamitos Bay Marina. For quick in-and-out access, park along Marina Drive at the opposite end of Whole Foods.
