Sugarfish (Studio City) is nice but I prefer Asanebo. Sugarfish reminds me of the mass-assembly sushi teishoku places in Tokyo--decent quality but a very sterile and assembly line presentation. Asanebo also has a lot more variety of things that you don't typically see in LA. The last time I was at Asanebo, I got sazae served flaming in the shell, shirako in a light ponzu, and a couple of other really awesome items. Still reeling from the price tag though.

Another idea one for the east siders is Nishi-ya, on Victory on the Glendale-Burbank border. It's actually better than most of the places on Sushi Row in Studio City (which may be damning with faint praise, since a lot of the places in Studio City suck) and it's right at the 5/134 junction.

Min's kitchen in La Canada has great thai food, if you happen to end up in La Canada...a...

Western Doma in Korea Town has great, cheap korean food.

Has LAMILL been mentioned? Everything about this place is good: great coffee, great food, easy parking, very comfortable place to sit and read/talk (unlike most every other coffee shop...)

Min's? LOL. The Egg Foo Yung and Wor Wonton Soup are so authentic.

Anyone who goes to Mori and has spicy tuna tacos looses a lot of credibility.

Kiriko is very good. Probably the best mid-range ($60-$100) sushi place in L.A.

Trust me, don't be a food cock.

I went to Sushi Zo again, and I have to give it an edge over Mori. Fresher fish, more inventive sauces, and more interesting salts (e.g., truffle salt, lemon salts, some thousand-year old salt...haha).

Some standout pieces were the sarawa, black snapper with truffle salt, a huge piece of Uni, steamed monkfish liver, and the toro and blue crab hand rolls, of course.

Anyone been to Littlefork in Hollywood? Made a res there for me and my girl, wanting to know if it's worth it.

what's the range? i'd like to try it and offer an opinion since you seem to favor it

retro, have you eaten there? personally, I really don't care about authenticity, I just want my food to taste good. and it's la canada, I mean, yeah.

istasi, have you tried this service: https://www.padmapper.com/ ?

might be some help. Not having a car is going to be tough...


Oh, in Claremont (again, try not to go there...), there's the Back Abbey.

Ricky's Fish tacos is great, cheap. I'm sure it's been mentioned on here before, but I haven't seen it.
