The beauty of living in LA/Southern California is that you're never farther than 20 minutes from a decent sushi restaurant. Gen, R23, Zo, Toshi, Urasawa, Nozawa, SugarFish, Mori, Kiyokawa, Kawa, Kiriko, Famima, Ralphs, Gelsons, the list NEVER ends. There is just no shortage of sushi in this city. It's a good thing for us sushi lovers as there are options galore when you have sushi on the brain.
While I don't find myself in the South Bay often, I was impressed enough with Nozomi Sushi that I would definitely take another drive down to experience the omakase there.
I'm starting a series called Supermarket Art, where I take regular food from various markets and do all types of things to the pictures and hopefully make them...beautiful? And it can't simply be aesthetically pleasing, the food needs to taste....GOOD.
Our first candidate: Woori Market in Cerritos, CA.
Mixed Roe Rice
The mixed roe rice bowl is really a rich meal, especially with the small piece of uni and unagi resting on top.
The mixed sashimi plate was a combination of god knows what fish. I think it was tuna, salmon, yellowtail, aji, and amberjack (could be completely wrong, feel free to correct for any sashimi-philes out there). This was ok, but I couldn't really expect much for such a big plate of sashimi for $15. It was too...fishy.

"Lobster or BP Oysterette"
"Seriously, is this even worth debating?"
There is no better way to spend a Sunday evening after Cirque du Soleil's Kooza then to be by the beach enjoying a bottle of wine, a few dozen oysters and a hot fudge sundae. That's right, a hot fudge sundae. That's how we roll. A lobster roll?
