A good sushi place

Since I intially jumped on this board with a negative note, I'd like to post something positive.

By strange coincidence, right across the street from Sea Empress there's a great place for sushi. It's not a sushi bar, they only serve take-out. The overall tone of the sushi is delicateness. Because I'm a vegetarian, I now only eat the inari and it's the best I've ever tasted. Instead of the usual too much soy sauce, oversoaked, flacid bean curd pouches, Sakae's is light colored with the proper ratio of soy sauce and sugar.

In my pre-veg days, I also ate the nori-maki, ebi, mackeral etc. and can vouch for their quality as well. They do make a California roll (blasphemy!)but they boast that they use real shrimp. The prices are more than reasonable, they range from .60 to .75 cents a piece. And you're going to love how they put your order in a box, wrap a logo laden white paper around it, tie it up with string and stick a chop stick on top. This is definitely a place that does not believe in cutting corners.

Here's their address and phone number:

Sakae Sushi
1601 Redondo Beach Blvd. (Actually the shop faces Denker Ave.)
Gardena
(310)532-4550.

And, no, I have no affiliation with them. I'm just a very long time satisfied customer. They are a little hole-in-the wall that never was hurting for business.
