What a find, Kirk! I would never have suspected you to find such a good place down in that neighborhood. The Aji and Saba had my mouth watering...


Hi JosephE - I have a feeling that there are a few more interesting restaurants under the radar in the South Bay.



Nicely done! Bravo!

I love exploring new sushi bars and getting to know the itamae. 'Course, sometimes the knife cuts both ways. I've had some really grouchy itamae turn what should have been an excellent sushi experience into a disappointment. Needless to say, I don't frequent those restaurants a second time.

Yakata looks like a gem.

Well done Kirk. It all looks really good.


Whoops, I wasn't quite finished. I, unlike Chubbypanda, do not frequent new sushi bars very often. I don't like to be surprised, particularly when it comes to sushi. Anyway, thanks for the new data...I will definitely file this away for next time.


Wow, a place on Hoover Ave that serves huge hotategai and awesome-looking hamachi and aji? I should really check this out the next time I'm in the area!


Hi CP - I'm kinda cautious when it comes to Sushi Bars, but in this case something told me to check it out.

Hi Jack - This place is pretty good, not a huge variety, but good quality fish.

Hi Ed - Whod've thought? In National City.


This seems to be a place to come for quality fresh sushi. Just for those times when your tastebuds are yearning for good fresh tasting seafood. Judging from your previous eats though this isn't a cheap eat by many accounts though.


Hi Rachel - No not cheap, tho' I really don't think you'd want bargain basement raw fish!


nice review...sounds like Angotei in Costa Mesa. Best sushi I have had so far.

Kirk, you definitely find the best restaurants. For every 1 good Japanese restaurant, there are at least 10 bad ones. Do you have any recs for a decent Japanese sushi restaurants in the San Gabriel Valley?


Hi nhbilly - There it is....I was trying to remember the name of the Sushi Bar you mentioned before! Thanks.

Hi Andy - I've heard that there are a few pretty good sushi places in the SGV, but I haven't tried them. Someone mentioned Z Sushi in Alhambra. I've tried the Sushi places around Diamond Bar - Rowland Heights - Hacienda Heights, and they aren't really that good. Of course Little Tokyo isn't really that far.....


Haha...Kirk...I want sushi now!!!
