Omakase in the OC?
Are there any good omakase in the OC area? If so, how much? I'm looking for something pretty comparable to Sushi Zo and Sasabune in LA.
Haven't been to Sushi Wasabe in Tustin, but the omakase comes highly regarded. That's the only thing they do.
Here's a review by Gustavo Arellano of the OC Weekly.
However, I do love Shibucho (traditional sushi-only omakase). Here are pictures:
I love Bluefin (a 6 course tasting menu which also includes sushi and sashimi). Here are pictures:
Finally made it to Sushi Wasabi tonight. The smaller amount of rice was the first thing I noticed, but then I realized that it just allowed me to concentrate on the fish.
All in all, a very good omakase experience -- in fact the low point of the evening was the toro (for my money, Sushi Ike still gets the best toro). Everything else was great, especially the red snapper, the scallop, and the freshwater eel.
Now I wish I had known about this place was when I was still working in the area! Thanks, russ, for the repeated recommendations.
