Sushi Gen Restaurant Review

: If the number of dining options in Little Tokyo overwhelms you, this conveniently located sushi bar is a good place to know about. Its sushi chefs are skilled and friendly, and for those who don't want to sit at the long lacquered bar, a number of white linen-clad tables are available in this traditionally decorated, but smart-looking restaurant. The sushi menu is fairly predictable, but the fish is fresh and prepared with care, including salmon nicely ribboned with fat, seasonal octopus sashimi, toro and succulent albacore. You can also find tempura, oysters on the half-shell, grilled salmon or yellowtail collar, and steamed vegetables. Sushi Gen even offers natto, the gooey fermented soybean paste that is truly an acquired taste. A few high-end sak├ęs are available to pair with your meal, or to enjoy while one waits, as there is almost always a line.
