Founded by Mareo Torito in 1986, Kokoro has specialized in speed, low prices, freshness and healthy ingredients -- with a Japanese accent -- for decades now. In both look and feel, this original outpost apes a Japanese noodle shop, serving rice bowls and noodle bowls, sushi lite (think California and spicy tuna rolls), gyoza, edamame and salads, all very, very quickly. Wash it all down with a Japanese bubble-gum soda.
