Noshi Sushi

26 10 2007


If you’ve ever wondered how decent sushi is supposed to taste like, then go to Noshi Sushi. This is one of the only no-gimmick sushi places I know in Southern California. If you’re like me, you want raw fish. Cool, fresh, buttery slabs of sushi. And you’d like it somewhere where you can relax and spend a couple of hours. Not some uptight joint that serves the same dam thing, but the prices are doubled and the vibe is off.

Well Noshi is the place for you. They serve sushi how it’s served in Japan with a simple menu with simple dishes. You won’t find Rainbow Rolls, Manhattan Beach Rolls, or other multicolored American born sushi here, but the spicy tuna rolls or the scallop rolls are just as nice. There are a lot of other yummy dishes that you can try as well. For starters, there’s miso soup and dynamite, a baked scallop mixture with mayonnaise. Fish dishes include yellowtail belly and smoked salmon. As a sushi alternative, chicken teriyaki is served with iceberg lettuce and French dressing.

The prices are CRAZY LOW too. The most expensive item on the menu is $10.. When I went there with my friends, we ordered a few dishes and a few beers and the bill came out no more the $35. It’s so cheap compared to other sushi bars in the Los Angeles area.

Get there early beacuse the parking lot fills up fast and then you have to find off- street parking which, as everyone knows, is a pain in the ass. Another negative thing about this place is the wait. This place is small, so it get’s packed and busy fast. You might want to choose somebody to get there early to sign ya’ll names up or bring a snack in case you get hungry.

I had only one bad experience since I’ve been going to Noshi. One time, my friends and I had been waiting over 30 minutes. While we were waiting, the hostess was letting her friends go ahead of everyone. I went up to her to tell her what she was doing was wrong and I didn’t even raise my voice. Soon after, she lead us to a table. Sometimes it pays to be polite and not act a fool.

Besides those little tidbits, Noshi Sushi is one of my fave place to go out to eat (when my broke ass has money). Oh , don’t forget to get some sake or a $3 Asahi because what’s sushi without a nice beer or sake to wash it down.
