Looking for a place for lunch tomorrow with 2 friends. We'll be on Sawtelle. We want something simple but our last meeting was at Asahi so would prefer something else. For what it's worth, I tried the Udon place just south of it in the 2117 strip mall and didn't go wild over it.
Note: one person in the group loves Japanese cuisine except for raw fish so a sushi specialty place would not be a good idea.
