Los Angeles is a wonderful place to be if you’re a Japanese food aficionado. There are entire neighborhoods dedicated to cuisine: Little Tokyo in Downtown Los Angeles, Sawtelle Japantown on the Westside, and the suburban Japanese culinary destination that is the South Bay.

Often overlooked when it comes to the conversation of sushi in Los Angeles, it seems, are the restaurants along Ventura outside of Studio City. While the majority of them are heavy on the rolls and cater to a more Westernized crowd, it’s a good place to frequent during happy hour or if you’re looking to schedule an epic food crawl.
