If you know the laws of eating food inside of bowling alleys, you know to generally steer clear altogether. Break that law at Gardena Bowl Coffee Shop. This tiny diner inside a neighborhood bowling alley has a very good menu of every American breakfast staple in the book, but you’re here for their Hawaiian/Asian fusion dishes. The kimchi bacon fried rice is excellent and we wish we were eating the Hawaiian Royal - a massive plate of eggs, rice, chashu, and Portuguese sausage - right now.
