Long Beach- sushi - mexican - italian
it's been a while since I've been here can anyone tell me the musts for Long Beach for Sushi, Mexican & Italian?
Enriques is the best Mexican food by far. One place for sushi that's decent is Japengo on 2nd street Belmont Shore. If I want really good sushi, I just give it up and go to Oomasa in Little Tokyo - LA. Back in Long Beach, I also agree about Cafe Gazelle for Italian.
Neighborhood? Price range?
I'm not a sushi fan, and as far as I know LB isn't known for its great sushi.
Mexican? I'm a broken record on this, but Enrique's is our class act (PCH at Loynes).
For high-end northern Italian, I still love Christy's (Broadway at Termino, Belmont Heights). For red sauce southern Italian, my fave is Ferraro's (Wardlow at Los Coyotes Diagonal, East Long Beach near Eldorado Park).
aki's sushi in long beach on 7th between cherry and orange i believe is the best sushi in long beach. half of the restaurant is thai, the other half is sushi. the thai food is okay, nothing special but the sushi is fantastic. its always crowded on the sushi side.
i think they opened another one, just sushi on the corner of redondo and 7th, haven't been there.
Coco Renos on Broadway at Redondo for Mexican,
Sushi Studio on PCH near Clark for creative rolls and happy hour specials, Koi in Seal Beach - for more expensive but very good Nigiri.
for Itallian, I've never been, but heard cucina Picarelli on PCH - accross the street from Sushi Studio is supposed to be very good.
