Fishlips Sushi Truck ~ Short review + pics

Today we ate at FishLips Sushi Truck. They were located in Little Tokyo, near downtown.
When I first heard of a truck selling sushi, I was somewhat skeptical, but I am glad I decided to give it a try. It was so good, every bit of it. They use high quality and very fresh ingredients. Their rolls were very good, and the tamari balls practically melt in your mouth.
Their truck is impeccable, very clean, and very well equipped. They are also very well organized, in every way. Imagine that you are eating at a sushi bar, and practically you can see everything that is going on. (no seats available)
Our sushi was prepared to order, but it was ready quite fast.
There is one window where you place your order and pay, and another for pick up.
I highly recommend them.
You can find them on Twitter:

        1. Update:
          I have been to Fishlips Sushi about 3 times now, and still it's as good as the first time, last night they were in Venice for First Friday, the sushi chefs were extremely busy, but they still had that friendly smile on their faces. They had a big crowd of customers, and everyone was very happy, and just raving about the sushi.

            Just picked up a Small California Set for $5.95. And Subway is selling footlongs for $5.00
            Good bye Subway hello Fish Lips. They are parked today from 11:00-1:00 p.m. on a service road adjacent to Imperial about 2 blocks West of Sepulveda on the South Side of the street. You can see the truck when driving on Imperial ( its not at 1700 as the site said). Wow these guys are so nice and the fish is very fresh. Westsidegal, go check them out. You are the Ivan Bosky of sushi :), so if you write them up well they will have a fleet of trucks in no time soon. Very Very Clean, Fresh and again Wonderful people. Check out the site and and they do Twitter as well. Just love the concept..
