Arashi sushi - Downtown, L.A.


After reading so many good reviews on Yelp about this Arashi sushi, I had to check this place out. Unfortunately, the sushi was just average and their robata-yaki were bland. But good prices on Happy Hour.

Because our shrimp robata-yaki was old and we returned it, they gave us one of the dessert for free.

sushi / Robata-yaki list

Crunchy unagi roll $6 (happy hour price)

shrimp robata-yaki $1.50 x2 (happy hour price)
shrimp was old, so we returned it.

chicken breast with plum paste $1 x2 (happy hour price)
No flavor.

Egg $2 (happy hour price)

Albacore $2.50 , Salmon $2.50 (happy hour price)

Yellowtail Belly $6.50

Chicken meat ball $1.50 (happy hour price)

Asparagus w/bacon $1.50 x2 (happy hour price)

White tuna (ono) $2.50 (happy hour price), Bonito (Katsuo) $5.50
Katsuo was frozen. one of the worst katsuo nigiri sushi I've ever had. It is shame that they put this frozen katsuo under "today's special". December is not the right season for Katsuo.

Scallop filo (deep-fried scallops wrapped in filo pastry) $10.50

Pike Mackerel (sayori) $6.50
Sayori was good

J's special (real crab meat wrapped inside albacore with mustard soy sauce) $13.95
My friend said crab meat tastes fake, but I liked this J's special. It was tasty.

Deep fried spicy tuna ribs with ponzu sauce $9
It was soft and tasty.

Tiramisu $8
our waitress told me, they have two different kind of tiramisu, one is homemade, and one is from store. They only serve homemade tiramisu to VIP because it's really popular. She said this is homemade tiramisu and it was good.

Green tea tempura ice cream $6.50
Not so recommended.
