Koreatown Sushi: Where to Begin?

i know there is a lot of it, are there any must-try places? Do the prices tend to be more reasonable than in other parts of town?

    You know, if you were aiming to do traditional sushi, opt to get sushi at any number of great establishments around the city.

    If you wanted to do a Korean take on seafood/sashimi, opt for preparations involving raw seafood immediately cut up from tanks upon ordering.

    @ Masan, you can order live octopus, abalone, lobster, and halibut. On top of that, you can order their specialty which is this sort of Monkfish stew.

      I don't know about you guys, but I'll always love wasabi. It's cheap and the food is always consistent. It doesn't have to be fancy to be good! Hehe.

        I'm a fan of Noshi Sushi on Beverly just east of Western. Always fresh, generous portions, the rice is well seasoned, and prices are reasonable. It gets crowded, so we tend to go at off hours (mostly late lunches), and they accept cash only.
