Hey LA Chowhoundsters,
I'm going to be staying in Woodland Hills via Brooklyn next week. I'm looking for some recommendations for authentic Mexican, Sushi and what ever else is good for less than $25. Some of the places I like in the area include My Brother's BBQ and Pizza Cookery. Anything else?
There is a place on Ventura called something like "All You Can Eat Sushi" (it says it on the sign) that is pretty decent. I have been once when my brother came to visit a year ago. He used to go all the time when he lived out here. I think it is around $23 for all you can eat for an hour. I thought it was really good for the price. Sit at the sushi bar. I am not sure of the address, but it is near Seashell Restaurant, east of the In-N-Out on the north side of the street.
For Mexican, if you have a car, you might want to held out to Las Fuentes in Reseda (10 to 15 minute drive). If you want to stay in Woodland Hills, try Poquito Mas off of Ventura Blvd between De Soto and Canoga. It's really good, and you should go there for lunch.
For sushi, Shibuya in Calabasas by the Commons is awesome, but not sure you can get out under $40 if you order the good stuff. For something a little cheaper that is good, try Brother's Sushi on Ventura Blvd/De Soto Ave. For something even cheaper than that, try Tatuski right next to Brother's.
You must go to Gorikees in Woodland Hills (one of the best restaurants, good prices and loved by chowhounders). It's on Ventura/Topanga Canyon in the corner of the shopping mall with Ralph's and Vons.
For sushi and pricing, to give you an idea, at Brother's, they have a sashimi combo with like 15 pieces+ of great sashimi for $20 or something like that. It comes with rice and soup. They may have a sushi combo also. At Tatsuki, the sushi combo would be less. If you order individually, you may go over $25.
As for Shibuya, it's one of the best sushi I have ever had (bluefin, toro, giant clam). They don't have combos, and everything is a la carte. It's really good though.
For cheap eats in Woodland hills try dan's super subs. I doubt there is any good sushi place that you can get out under $25 but if you can drive up to chatsworth (10 minutes north) try omino sushi.
head over to yang chow in canoga.
