There are a lot of sushi places in LA.  But what sets this place apart from the rest is their uni-don aka fresh sea urchin bowl.    The uni is from California, and not imported, so it is very fresh.  It’s a more delicate, refreshing and sweeter uni than the typical one you’d find at sushi restaurants.  The uni-don is a good deal during lunch time, at $15 a bowl (choose from sushi rice or reg rice – go with the sushi rice!) which comes with a salad a miso soup – perfect for light eaters.  For average eaters, you might want to order and split a lunch combination with the uni-don.  The fried oysters and teriyaki chicken are good choices.

You never want to go back to regular uni after this place!

    Browsing your site while hungry was definitely a bad idea now I have an intense craving for uni-don!
