This is a picture of Jorge Nakamoto (center), owner of Wakatay Restaurant-Peruvian Nikkei Cuisine. He is a Japanese Peruvian, and came to the United States about 20 years ago. Here, he holds up his new menu, to be released in the near future. On his right is Yoko Nishimura. On his left is Elizabeth Ishida.

On Saturday, August 11, 2007, I went to Wakatay Restaurant-Peruvian Nikkei Cuisine with my co-workers from the Japanese American National Museum. The fusion of the foods and flavors made for some very unique and delicious entrees. Wakatay Restaurant is located at the Pacific Square, 1630 W. Redondo Beach Blvd. Gardena, CA, 90247.
