Humble Potato, a Colorful Japanese-Inspired Snack Shop Opening Today in Culver City

Burgers, sandwiches, drinks, and more.

The rise of Humble Potato from Lincoln Blvd. strip mall near LAX to prominent Culver City location is now complete. News of the expansion of the Japanese-leaning Westchester location first landed last summer, but these finished photos show a much more beautiful build-out than was initially known.

Humble Potato is a comforting, fun take on many common Japanese snacky favorites, from koke kokko sandwiches to burgers to curried hot dogs to fried chicken salads. Management says that their Culver City location, near A-Frame and right next door to musubi shop Sunny Blue, will not be a fast-casual like their Westchester outlet. Instead, it’ll have full sit-down service and should include a beer and wine license in a few weeks.

As for design, there’s a well-lit patio out back, lots of art on the walls and plenty of colorful elements throughout. It’s still on the smallish side, but what more could one want from a drink-and-a-bite spot in this part of town?

Humble Potato opens tonight in Culver City at 6 p.m., and will be open for lunch and dinner moving forward.
