you will love Sushi Don Sasabune! A friend of mine recently told me that the owners of Sasabune have a much cheaper, absolutely no frills sushi restaurant that uses the same quality fish.
You have to eat here to believe it (they even do california and spicy rolls). This place is called "Sushi Don Sasabune" and is located in the strip mall on the corner of Laurel Canyon and Riverside. For $9.00 you get five pieces of sushi and a big roll of whatever you want, and it's delicious. (They have other deals too but their menu is pretty small so don't expect exotic specialties).
I have been going there regularly for some time now, and have been sad to see that it's pretty empty a lot of the time. So I am hoping the chowhounds out there will like it too and spread the word about this great place. I honestly can't stand the thought of it closing. Delicious cheap sushi! Does it really get much better than that?
Check it out. I hope you like it as much as I do.
