Yamas Teriyaki House

19091 Beach Blvd.
Huntington Beach, CA 92648
Yamas Teriyaki House is a Japanese restaurant in Huntington Beach and Westminster. Everything is great, if a bit more common: zippy green papaya salad, slurp-worthy pad Thai and so on. But the most unique dish is the hor mok talay—seafood custard. Throw together an ecosystem of fishes, crustaceans, and mollusks, steam them in curry-spiked coconut milk, add a couple of vegetables, and pour the results into a coconut, adding in an egg so everything gels together.
