Morihiro@Atwater Village ★★★

Edomae Style Sushi to perfection, comparable to Jiro Sushi in Tokyo. One-Michelin-Star. Exquisite presentation. Super fresh sashimi with less oil. Perfect small rice portion on the sushi. Rice mixed with red vinegar, Edomae style. Abundant of dishes. Rice specifically grown for him from his hometown, the Iwate Perfecture. Bought some uncooked rice home for $15/lb. Chef Mori retired from Mori Sushi and came back. He said making good sushi makes him happy. Humble man. He's also good friends with Shunji-san from Shunji Sushi. Sushi Counter (with Chef Mori) is $350-$400 per person. Wine pairing $150 at counter (7 glasses) and $75 at table (4 glasses). Omakase only. Reservations via Tock. Corkage fee is $50.

Yelp Elite: Oyabun@Koreatown ★

Yelp Elite Perk: 3 Free Specialty Rolls. A generous $60 value at the Korean sushi restaurant. All rolls were great. Baked Salmon Roll even came in flames. Uni was on the bitter side. Shrimp was very fresh. Shrimp head can be fried upon request. The head was huge, meaty, and delicious. I only paid for the Uni and Shrimp Sashimi I ordered. Sashimi seems to be overpriced. More than Japanese restaurant. I remember paying $40 for 6 pieces of Live Shrimp at Korea restaurant back in the days. They have their own fish tanks. Parking on the street or at their lot for $4.

Complimentary Banchan

Baked Salmon Roll (originally $20)
Crab, Avocado, Baked Salmon, Baked Mayo, Eel Sauce

Shrimp Tempura Roll (originally $20)
Crab, Avocado, Cucumber, Shrimp Tempura, Crunch Flakes, Eel Sauce

Hot Night Roll (originally $20)
