Musha - Liked it, but would like a larger menu

Work has me in the South Bay so I decided to try some of the Japanese places that people rave about in Torrance/Gardena. Went to Musha the other day with a co-worker. Tried the usual suspects:

- Self-grilled tenderloin - very tender pieces, nice little dipping sauce
- Buta Kakuni - soft pork, flavorful and rich. It's amazing since I ate this so much growing up (a staple in Vietnamese dishes) and I know Filipinos also have a similar rendition in pork adobo. Funny.
- Ebi Mayo Mayo - fried shrimp tossed in a sweet and tangy mayo sauce which was pleasantly good. Very safe option if you take someone non-adventurous. Reminds me of the "bang bang" shrimp at Bonefish Grill (a regional seafood restaurant chain).
- Cheese Risotto - presentation and prep very cool (cheese bowl), pretty rich. I appreciated the flavor.

Overall, I thought it was good and the servings were appropriate for what people term "tapas" or "bar food" - albeit a little pricey on some items. I think I prefer the bredth of menus at restaurants like Haru Ulala or Honda-ya, which offer sashimi and grilled items. I think the menu at Musha, while large - was sort of limiting. Oh well.
