First time at Sushi Shibucho...

Just wanted to report on my first visit to Sushi Shibucho. I went after reading all the different rave reviews on here and after reading elmomonster's blog about them.

It was really slow tonight, there was only one other couple when we arrived at about 6:40pm. We sat at the bar and ordered omakase. The place is a lot smaller than i imagined. One sushi bar with about 10-12 seats and about 3-4 tables. Naga, the son, served us. He's very nice and friendly, a bit quiet but very receptive to any questions you have for him.

I dont remember everything we had, but almost everything i had was new to us and we enjoyed pretty much everything he gave us. The bill came out to ~98 dollars after tax and two bottles of sapporo beer. I think we somewhat over did it as we were extremely stuffed(i didnt even have lunch today).

I will definitely be heading back there when i have a chance.

address is: 590 West 19th Street, Costa Mesa CA 92627
its a small place and its next to an In'n'out.

    Yep, I heard that's the trick! Come in on a weeknight. I've been about a half dozen times in the last year or so and never able to get a bar seat. Even calling for a reservation I've been denied.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the report!
