Im craving sushi!

Im craving some sushi lately and there arent really any good sushi places anymore.

Do you guys know a place with good sushi???
Preferebly not a hip trendy Hollywood or LA cafe or bar.

I wants some real authentic japanese food.

I want some saba fish or some good rolls

      Saba usually refers to mackerel. ;)

      1. I have a bit of difficulty accepting your statement that: "there arent really any good sushi places anymore." Where have you been looking?

        I think the consensus here is that Urasawa is clearly the top when it comes to sushi. In fact, I just posted about it recently: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/564129

        Other places that have their fans include: Asanebo, Echigo, Go's Mart, Hama, Katsuya (the original), Kiriko, Komasa, Mori, Sushi Gen, Sushi Zo, etc.

          This person is a chowhound newbie... I can understand why he/she feels this way. It's not because the good stuff isn't available... it's that the city is so big and intimidating that it's difficult to know where exactly to begin. Sadly the hip and trendy Yelp/Citysearch places tend to stand out in the limelight and get repeated in magazines, papers, etc.

          Go to Sushi Gen in Little Tokyo. Get a table (*not* the sushi bar) and order the 'sashimi deluxe', which costs about $15 for lunch or about $25 for dinner. Very traditional, very good quantity and quality fish (for the price).

        2. Try sushi Zo, though he only does a few handrolls (blue crab, scallop). His menu is omakase only but you won't be disappointed. Awesome selection of fish. Don't act like you know more about sushi than he does and you'll be fine.

            Have you been sleeping under a rock?! We got a boatload of great sushi here in L.A!

            If rolls are what the poster is after, I think that he/she would enjoy:

            By the way, "real authentic Japanese food" is so, SO much more than just sushi.

              And rolls barely come into play.

            2. Sushi Sushi on Beverly Dr. Great saba. Along with everything else.
