1) So I've gone as far back in this message board as my sanity will allow (I think I got up to end-of-July-ish) and I didn't see anything similar posted.
Looking for good japanese food to share with visiting friends. Under $40 per person preferred. Not looking for any particular type of cuisine -- curry, yakitori, okonomiyaki, sashimi, whatever. Personally I like really really fresh, good quality sashimi. The friends are staying in Universal City so somewhere within 30 min driving time each way would be ideal.
I'm pretty familiar with the Sawtelle places but I haven't lived in the area since last summer. If there's anything new there I'd love to hear about it. I like Furaibo and Sawtelle Kitchen but these places are somewhat farther from Universal City.
2) What does "ISO" mean?
3) What's good at Boule?
