Sushi Sushi@Beverly Hills ★★★

Quality You Can Taste. I love their Uni, Ikura, and Negitro. They are one of the rare places that makes Uni Sushi without the Seaweed, have the Ikura marinated sweet (instead of salty), and has fresh Grated Toro for the Negitoro Roll. Don't forget to bring ample cash. They do 10% discount if you are paying by cash.

Cheng Can Cook: Eggplant in Buttermilk Sauce ★★

Recipe from the book "Plenty: Vibrant Recipes from London's Ottolenghi". Since this is my first time making it, I would modify the recipe a bit by skipping the Greek yogurt and put less Buttermilk Sauce in the Eggplants. Other than that, this is a very visually inviting dish.

Sea Urchin Sushi $3.99
