I hate to reveal a favorite neighborhood joint, but all should enjoy. Starting today, Fukyo, a sushi bar and japanese restaurant at 4517 Sepulveda, south of Ventura, offers an AYCE option from 11:30 to 2:30 for lunch and also for dinner. The time limit is 1 hour. Excluded from the special are the high-end items such as ama ebi, uni, ankimo, aji and the house special rolls that cost $10 and up. Compare this to the Echigo $10 (now $11) lunch special with only a handful of pieces of sushi.
They're also having a Halloween party on the 28th, 29th and 30th, AYCE with no time limit for $25.
We really like Fukyo, as much for the interplay with Mas, the owner, as for the fish. We go there once a week for lunch. His fish is very fresh.
