I'm from Torrance and people in Torrance don't like to drive more than 2 miles to any place, including a restaurant. So for my birthday, I drove 5 miles or so to Hermosa Beach to try Abigail, which, in short, proved to be a very good restaurant worth the arduous trek.
My wife Carrie and I ordered over a half dozen tapas dishes and all were good, the very best being the burrata goat cheese salad with spicy honey over walnut toast. That is a must.
The Thai red curry short rib was also very good.
The waiter steered us to all good dishes except for one: dessert. He recommended something called a Snicker Bar, a larger version of the candy bar, which he said was their most famous dessert. I found the Snicker Bar cloying, overpowering in its sweetness and in general unpleasant. I should have ordered the blackberry cobbler. Oh well. There will definitely be a next time.
