Oops! Sushi (I'm not kidding about the name)

Anyone? Gateway and Barrington in the 90064 (in with Tlapazola Grill). I didn't even notice the change over in my own neighborhood until they stuck a "hang tag" on my door touting their Happy Hour specials. I just wonder if the dyslexic among us see this as Poos sushi? ;-D>

  1. I'm not ashamed to admit... We've done the Opps Sushi! And we like it for what it was. Most of their rolls, especially the happy hour rolls are the typed STUFFED with krab salad. The salad is good, but it makes for super heavy rolls.

    For the happy hour, we found the best deals to be:
    The Baked Green Mussel (Dynamite basically)
    Scallop Sushi
    Shrimp Lovers Roll

    SKIP the Spicy Seafood Roll.

      It's been a while since krab (with a 'k') has been spotted on this board... Thanks for reporting back.

        I really don't mind krab all that much. I'll have to give this place a try.

        1. re: Servorg

          If you think of "krab" as what the Japanese call "kamaboko" then it is actually quite tasty.
          Never ever think of it as real crab, though.

          1. re: Tripeler

            The "joke" my wife taught me from 30 years ago when we first were going out was "Oh No! Kamaboko!" from the pink and white Ono Kamaboko that she grew up with. I don't mind it when it's processed into "krab" but that pink and white stuff must be some sort of acquired taste...and I never acquired it.

            1. re: Servorg

              Well, as with hot dogs, some are really good and others are weird, pasty concoctions. Cheap kamaboko is no fun, but the good stuff (generally higher fish content, lower starch) is really quite tasty. Also, these days the "krab" style kamaboko is quite well made, with interesting texture and good flavorings (usually boiled out of crab shells) and I certainly enjoy it in a salad.

      2. Man, that neighborhood must be ground zero for terrible sushi joint names- within a 5ish mile radius you also have B.A.D. Sushi (Best And Delicious) and Mi So Fishy...
