Help! I've been trying earnestly to find good sushi in Pasadena or nearby. I'm on the verge of giving up. When I say "good sushi" I mean on the level of Sugarfish, Nozawa, Sasabune, Masu, or the like. I have already tried, and been disappointed with: Osawa (overpriced hit-or-miss sushi; great for shabu-shabu!), Yoshida (mediocre, overpriced), Sushi Ichi (nothing special, but only tried for lunch), Takuya (rice was sub-par), Noda (inexpensive but unremarkable), Japon Bistro (hit or miss), Matsuri (inexpensive but not great), Sushi of Naples (haven't been in a while after some bad experiences in the past), Oba Sushi Izakaya (better for cooked food, sushi's so-so), Zushi (fine for silly rolls), A'Float (haven't been back in a long time after bad experiences).
I have yet to try Kimagure. Is it my only hope? Should I even bother?
