After going to almost all the big name sushi places in LA and many others abroad nothing quite adds up like Asanebo. The food is simply a notch higher than everywhere else and every time I venture away from this restaurant I'm left feeling disappointed.
They somehow manage to stay traditional yet creative without going over the top and the service is always friendly and on point. It also does't hurt that there is usually a good smattering of very famous faces stilling at arms length.
This is not just a sushi place so don't just stick to classic sushi and sashimi dishes. Their cooked food and little off beat dishes like home made sesame tofu are equally good.
If you want the quintessential LA dining experience (celebrity, strip mall, hole in the wall) with amazing Japanese food then this spot is well worth checking out. Just remember to check your bank account before you go.
