One of several sushi options in the part of West Los Angeles known as Little Osaka, SushiStop may be the best for a quick lunch break. With just about two dozen chairs surrounding the sushi bar inside the small Sawtelle Boulevard storefront, seating is at a premium, but once hunkered into a chair, diners are treated to seriously affordable rolls and sashimi. Most items at SushiStop cost less than three dollars, and for newcomers to the Japanese delicacy, the restaurant’s basic rolls will be enough to satisfy. The more adventurous diners, however, can look forward to creations like the Las Vegas roll, which tops an eel roll with spicy tuna and lotus root, or the seafood ceviche, which is accompanied by a spicy soy-ginger sauce. Service can be brisk, but the amiable sushi chefs are always willing to give a hearty hello and goodbye.
