Kiriko sushi on Sawtelle

Nothing really special. tried tuna, albacore, toro, kampachi, california roll (i know i was kind of desperate) also the prices don't seem to match the quality proffered. additionally, i guess i was seated in front of apprentice chef. and service, not so great either. until at least i showed interest in the homemade ice creams, which were actually the saving graces and ultimately almost excellent or near there. problem was the scoops were tinsey. but the flavor was very, very good. tried the brown sugar w/ ginger ice cream, which was a nice full-bodies cream filled with pieces of actual ginger. also, tried bitter green tea ice cream, the waitress insisted it was quite bitter (since they put lots of real green tea powder in it), which it was but then again it was a refreshing change from the syrupy sweet concoctions at other sushi bars and japanese restaurants. lastly, i also tried the blackberry ice cream, which was nice and creamy and halfway between sorbet and ice cream. nevertheless, very good stuff.

final comment: go for just the ice creams if you can and use the place as an ultimately non-traditional ice cream shop. since the sushi is plebein and just ok at best.
