So....I will be in Los Angeles for my birthday in August. I'm coming from Chicago- where the "sushi" is more like rice rolls stuffed with mayo and cream cheese with tempura flakes and smothered in unagi sauce- and somewhere in there is a little bit of fish.
Last time I was in LA, I had omakase at Sushi Sushi in BH. I loved the nice clean pieces of fish with a little rice and just enough sauce that didn't taste like maple syrup with salt added. I could play it safe and return to Sushi Sushi, but I'd like to try some place different on this trip. In terms of price I'm okay with spending around $150 on myself. I will be staying near Culver City but will have a car so I'm open to driving around for a good place.
If I can tell you anything else that'll be of help just let me know.
