Kabuki Sushi - yuck. Don't go.

Jeremy S | Dec 6, 200407:58 PM

Looking for sushi close to Silver Lake, Los Feliz?

Went to the Hollywood location over the weekend...ordered the usual suspects: mackerel, yellowtail, eel, spicy tuna, etc. Bad bad bad.

The crunch roll and eel were passable. The mackerel was very fishy, and some other item (was it snapper?) tasted like urine. Yes, urine.

I was scared I was going to get sick. Merely for the sake of poetic justice; all the time I spent trying to convince my mother to east sushi by saying, "I've never once gotten ill from raw fish" would come back to haunt me and her paranoia would be proven the correct path. Luckily, despite a few stomach rumblings, nothing much happened.

For better sushi at this price go to Noshi, which, while not great, is passable.

Better yet, go to Saito's or Sushi Gen for outstanding food. The monkfish liver (ankino?) we had there a few weeks ago will never be forgotten.
