Los Angeles Sushi Spots

04/12/2012

Los Angeles has a slew of sushi spots. Which is perfect for a city that is very down with the raw fish. So, if you’re looking for your next maki roll, sushi or sashimi, here are some places for you to check out:

Saito’s Sushi
On a budget? Get your butt to this Silver Lake local spot. Chef Saito creates plates of innovative sushi that are still affordable! 4339 W Sunset Blvd.; 323.663.8890

Wa Sushi & Bistro
A WeHo spot among all your usual staple restaurants, offers a unique experience. Fill up on unexpected seasonings like black truffles and pesto. Come on. Be a little adventurous. 1106 N La Cienega Blvd.; 310.854.7285

Sushi Park
Sushi Park is unassuming against the ritzy spots on Sunset. This is more of you on baller status. It’s Omakase-only and comes with a hefty bill. But with that, the chef walks you through each dish and the experience is worth every penny! 8539 Sunset Blvd., Suite 20; 310.652.0523

Sushi Gen
Resys are recommended for dinner at this spot. As for lunch, it’s only $15 for rice, miso and a sampling of little plates. 422 East 2nd St.; 213.617.0552

Hiko Sushi
Sawtelle is known for sushi restaurants, but check this one out. They are straight forward with their sushi fare here. 11275 National Blvd.; 310.463.7688

Asanebo
Here’s a little secret. Strip malls usually have the best restaurants. This Studio City gem may be a little pricey, but order up the Miso Chilean Sea Bass With Daikon in a butter lettuce cup, Roasted Gingko Nuts in sea salt and the Halibut Sashimi with black truffle. 11941 Ventura Blvd.; 818.760.3348

Don’t drive by this spot in Malibu. Chef Toshi serves up some delish Ganja and Vegas rolls. Finish with the Fried Green Tea Ice Cream for dessert. 29350 Pacific Coast Highway; 310.457.4131

This Rastafarian themed spot also has cheap Japanese. So rock out and eat amazing albacore and dragon rolls. 12013 West Pico Blvd.; 310.479.1507
