Sushi place with best SPIDER rolls?

Hello !

I looove spider rolls. It has to have a nice crunchy texture to it and have a decent amount of crab in it. So far, my fave is Frying Fish in Little Tokyo. Rec's for other places that serve a mean spider roll?

Thanks :)

  1. Just about all of the rest of their sushi is not very good (except BBQ yellowtail roll), but Tokyo Delve's has my favorite spider roll. I know it's a novelty place, but the spider roll stands out as one of their best dishes.

      Tokyo Delve's...really? I went there once for happy hour and was not impressed. Which one do you go to?

    2. Koi in Seal Beach does a great spicey hand roll version. I usually order it hand roll style as it is easier to eat.

      1. I really like the one at Hirosuke in Encino.

        Kiriko, despite being known for its purist sushi, has a good one too (called a softshell crab roll).

        1. Just last Sunday we had a Spider Roll at Gonpachi in Beverly Hills, it was very good. One of the best I have ever had.
