Sushi Ichi@Pasadena ★★

A Decent Sushi Restaurant in Pasadena. We had the Omakase for about $60 (price varies). Reservation recommended. I like the Sea Bream and Amberjack a lot. Don't care for the Sweet Shrimp. The salmon was not fatty enough. You will get a much better experience sitting at the sushi bar if you are ordering omakase.
