Far out from where you might expect genius sushi to be—on Saticoy in North Hollywood—sits Chiba Sushi. Make sure you sit with Shig, the owner and master sushi chef. The food is utterly amazing, says Hypnotic23.
There's everything from excellent traditional sushi to tasty roasted nuts for starters. Salmon belly with black caviar melts in your mouth, says Hypnotic23. There is much for the lovers of rolls, including a crunchy shrimp roll. And the best dish of all: uni (sea urchin) with three eggs.
"Secret is out," says Isamu Kihara. "Shig is one of the more skilled and personable sushi chefs in Los Angeles. I am always amazed at his patience in explaining the kind of fish he has prepared and how to eat it. Keep up the good work Shig."
