Sushi Sasabune

I have read about this place for so long, I decided to try it today for lunch. At first I didn't see it...the awning has no name on it. I just parked at Sawtelle and Nebraska at noon and looked where all of the people were going. As soon as I walked in, they met me at the door and told me that this is not a normal sushi bar. They don't serve California Roll or Salads, just sushi. They also have a 4 order minimum. When I went to sit at the sushi bar you must order Omakase. I agreed to all of the rules and a very nice sushi master, young, spoke perfect English, helped me. I must note that the place has no decor as I was warned in posts to this board. They were also filled with customers. I tried virtually every type of fish that they had available plus Uni, Fish Eggs and an order of Monkfish Liver done 2 ways. Everything was the best example of that item that I have ever experienced. Even the Wasabi, while not fresh, was the best dried version I had ever tried. I was prepared for it to be expensive. I didn't know that Omakase is not a fixed price meal. The bill was $67.00, with tip $80.00. I will go there again but I can't afford to make this a regular habit. Thanks to all of you that posted your preference for this place.
