Echigo on Santa Monica and Bundy has a great $12 lunch special. The sushi is reminiscent of (and I believe far better than) Sasabune (formerly on Sawtelle). It is a great deal indeed.
I went to Echigo for lunch today and they now offer an Omakase lunch special that was amazing!! Toro, Skip Jack, seared Butterfish with miso paste, Yellowtail with a dollop of jalepeno relish, blue crab hand roll, and a few others. It was amazing.
