Chef Toshi never disappoints with Omakase. Albeit, we’ve eaten pretty much the same variety of fish for the last few years here like the usual butter fish, Kanpachi and toro, but I can still appreciate it each and every single time because the quality fish and the fluffy pillows of warm rice are so eye rolling good. Lastly, how can you not fall in love with Echigo after having that first bite into your freshly rolled crab hand roll. Heaven in a sheet of nori. *dreamy food coma look*
Yes yes, Nozawa with sushi Nazi is great Sasabune is fun and yummy. It ain’t no Nobu. However, Echigo is my go to Omakase in LA for the fresh fish, the price and unassuming atmosphere. Don’t make it your first date place if you’re looking for ambience. However, if you want melt-in-your-mouth sushi for a reasonable price, Echigo is the way to go.
I’m with Laosy L (on yelp). I heart Echigo forever. 5/5 beepz
