My daughter turned 10 yesterday and for her birthday meal she wants the kind of Japanese food you can get at Sakura on Centinela: a California roll, miso soup, some tempura and some teriyaki.
My partner and I are happy to oblige her, but have had eh experiences at Sakura and don't really want to wait in line for what we think is kind of mediocre food. What do hounds think of Yuuki on Sawtelle (where o-sho used to be -- we liked o-sho fine in the day); is it even still there? or any other place on Sawtelle similar to Sakura or O-Sho. Sawtelle would be great because then we could get Beard Papa for dessert.
At the moment we'll head for Noma unless someone can come up with something else.
Thanks in advance and by the way, we are making culinary breakthroughs with our daughters: last year's birthday dinner was at CPK.
