Shunji@West LA ★★★

Omakase Sushi with Shunji-san at the Sushi Bar. This time instead of the Shunji Omakase ($130-$160), I ordered the Sushi Special for $50 and added a few more sushi requests. It's much more economical this way. The sushi bar experience was more authentic than the table seating. Also got the gut to try Shirako, which is sperm sacs from Cod Fish...
Compare with Shunji from 2013 (3 years ago):

Squid Mix w/ Black Squid Ink, Uni, Truffle, & Quail Egg $10

Red Snapper



Trumpet Fish

Black Snapper

Sweet Lip Snapper

Shima Aji

Blue Fin Tuna

Belt Fish

Agedashi Tomato Tofu $10




Blue Crab Hand Roll

Salmon Roe

Hotate Scallop



Shunji-san Slicing Fish Skillfully
