Aburiya Toranoko

It's been a long time.

Let's see, so in between the last time I blogged (not counting the J Gold map) and today, life's been...kind of busy. Between work, side projects, and you know...GETTING engaged, it's been crazy busy. It's a good thing twitter is a nice and simple platform for microblogging. Not to mention, my love affair with the Instagram iPhone app, blogging has almost become, dare I say, pointless?

But alas, sometimes it's just good to do some good ole writing and after today's visit to Aburiya Toranoko, the newest baby in Michael Cardenas' Downtown LA empire, I thought it'd be a good time to revive this blog. Well, let's not kid ourselves. I'll probably post again in 2012.

Anyhow, on to the next one.

Nozomi Sushi – Omakase

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.

"Toshi? Kiriko?"
"8p, Kiyokawa, sushi bar, omakase."
"Alrighty then!"

Toshi Sushi – Omakase

The beauty of Toshi Sushi lies in its simplicity. The sushi counter seats 6 (maybe 8 if you take up the waiting area) and there are maybe 20 more seats in the main dining room.


But the simplicity of the restaurant belies chef Toshi-san's artistry.
