Founded by Mareo Torito, Kokoro has specialized in speed, low prices, freshness and healthy ingredients -- with a Japanese accent -- for two decades. In look and feel, this outpost apes a Japanese noodle shop, serving rice bowls and noodle bowls, sushi that isn't really sushi (five choices, all cooked), gyoza, edamame and salads, all very, very quickly.
