Hi... I'm wondering what sushi places are recommended for sushi in the San Diego, Long Beach, through LA area. I currently live in SD but go up to LA to visit my girlfriend every weekend. I absolutely LOVE sushi... My favorite places are those "hole in the wall" ones where you feel like you are in Japan (and possibly don't even have an English name). So far, i've tried and liked: Shirahama on Convoy street, SD, Kazumi sushi at the villiage hillcrest shopping center in SD, and a variety of Korean style sushi places in the LA area.
I'm not really big into those really loud / boistrous places like Sushi Ono, sushi on the Rock, etc.... too much flash and just OK food.
OH, and I'm not really big into the rolls.. I like real Nigiri sushi and Sashimi - and of course the spicy tuna rool ;)
anyway, let me know what you think.
