Hide-san is fully recovered from his wrist surgery and the counter is finally open. I really liked his otsumami, he’s doing a lot of things you can’t find in la.
- abalone sauce with rice aka “japanese risotto”, highlight of the night
- hanasaki-gani was super sweet and briny, haven’t seen this crab at many places
- shrimp and snapper spring roll
- ika meshi, something else I haven’t seen around much which is a shame because it’s delicious
- shima aji
- botan ebi
sunomono - baby abalone, mushroom, yuzu
shabu shabu - tako, kinome
hay-smoked masu, japanese mustard
female hanasaki-gani (hokkaido)
spring roll - shrimp, snapper, shiso
chawanmushi - uni, scallop, mushrooms
uni, ikura don
hanasaki-gani gunkan maki
chopped toro ohagi
Hide-san formerly of sushi tsujita has taken over the old mako sushi on the third level of weller court. They’re so new there’s no signage and there’s still a mako sushi sign hanging from the balcony.
Really enjoyed everything and it had nice qpr. Looking forward to trying their dine in omakase once it’s safe.
salmon and uni don
iwashi maki alert
haven’t seen this on the menu anywhere else in LA. hide-san’s version contains shiso, gari, and sesame seeds all wrapped in delicious fatty iwashi. incredible. iwashi fans, this is a must order.
hotaru ika with sumiso
it’s the season for firefly squid. these were soft and tender with a clean taste.
