After spending more than 20 years in the fine-dining industry, the duo behind Roll It Sushi & Teriyaki saw a need in the market for tasty sushi that is both affordable and fresh. Today, their eatery features 17 classic and specialty rolls along with a fun build-your-own sushi roll station. There, clients can choose from two wraps, nine veggies, and either eight cooked meats or four types of raw fish. In addition to sushi, the restaurant offers teriyaki-style bowls, plates, and sandwiches.
The traditional Japanese dish shabu-shabu translates to “swish-swish” after the sound of thinly sliced meat or seafood cooking in a pot of broth populated with cabbage, shiitake mushrooms, and other vegetables. Tokyo Shabu Shabu specializes in this edible onomatopoeia, giving diners the opportunity to customize every part of their meals as they cook each bite themselves. Beginning with the broth, guests can build their pot around a savory miso, spicy kimchi, or 12 other liquid bases. Certified-Angus beef, delicately marbled Kurobuta Berkshire pork, or unique Japanese seafood selections such as fish cake cook swiftly in the flavorful broths. Patrons can pair their bowls with eight different styles of sake and Japanese bottled drinks such as Kirin tea or melon soda.
The chefs at Sushi World take pride in their sushi rolls and Asian fusion cuisine, looking at their creations as not merely food, but edible art. They prepare baked blue-crab handrolls with garlic aioli and strawberry Cypress rolls behind the striking dark-granite sushi bar and send plates of orange-salsa-draped salmon carpaccio out to meet their fate in a flock of four-seater tables. From the kitchen also comes tempura green-tea ice cream wrapped in the same kind of chocolate cake prizefighters are wrapped in after winning a match.

A breathtaking 21 stories above downtown Los Angeles, Takami Sushi & Robata Restaurant gives guests views of the glittering city lights below. But Executive Chef Stan Ota’s gaze, however, never leaves the chopping boards and plates in front of him. Each maki roll and fresh-seafood dish he creates is born out of a lifetime of experience spent cooking Japanese- and French-style food. His cooking has garnered recognition from many trained palates, including British food critic Jay Rayner who put Ota’s restaurant on his list of where to find the world’s best foods.
In addition to seafood such as lobster rolls and lemon-albacore rolls, the extensive menu boasts a wide selection of fine robata, from filet mignon to baby lamp chops. Beyond these printed offerings, Ota also performs a feat of Japanese cookery called Omakase–which translates literally to “I’ll leave it to you”– improvising a five-course menu based upon the fresh-market ingredients gathered that day. To compliment meals, Ota puts an equal amount of thought into his cocktail list, which features exciting blends of liquors and spices. These drinks include lychee-infused mojitos, white-tea-rose martinis, and the Serrano kiss, spiced gin and lime with muddled Serrano chili.
