Although it sounds really unlikely for the location there is a small sushi restaurant called "oriental Breeze" on the redondo beach pier (112. N International Boardwalk, Redondo Beach, CA 90277 phone: 310 376 3889). It was recommended by a Japanese business associate. We realized we had walked by it numerous times without even giving it a second thought. We have been twice and can say it is really good. The fish is very high quality and fresh. Once we went omakase and it was fabulous. The other time we just ordered. They have very traditional things like Ankimo and an array of specials etc. Many of their regulars have bottles of Shochu with their names on them (not to be confused with Korean Shoju!) but you can just order it by the glass and they bring the bottle to the table and measure how much you drink at the end of the meal. It is by no means a fancy or trendy place but instead a more authentic style place with much importance paid to the quality of fish.
