sushi in the OC
My favorites are Sushi Shibucho, Costa Mesa for traditional omakase and upscale, and Sushi 5, Tustin for really good revolving sushi. I also like Maki Zushi in Tustin, the nigiri chef is really hitting his stride.
Here's some pics of Sushi Shibucho's sushi:
And some pics of Sushi 5's sushi:
TAKA SUSHI at Fairview & Baker in Costa Mesa is a good spot for old school sushi.
Taka has been doing his art for 30 plus years. He has a special menu board in Japanese which is the way to order, just ask him to translate, Tell him Steviesan sent you, I personally prefer the more exotic and different sushi myself. There's also ZEN SUSHI at Newport Blvd. & Harbor in Triangle Square which is like NEW WAVE SUSHI, with creative twist on old classic as well as new creations.
