Saturday night we had dinner at one of our favorite sushi restaurants in LA. It’s called Sakura (located on Centinella in Culver City) and it’s absolutely amazing. Their salmon sushi is one of the best I’ve had – especially for the price. Going to Sakura always seems like a special experience. There is almost always a long wait to get in – especially on weekends – but it’s totally worth it. They have chairs and heat lamps outside while you wait, as well as a colorful fish tank inside. The place is small and has a funky hole-in-the-wall 70s vibe. On Saturday I literally just ordered a large sake, a miso soup, and six pieces of the salmon sushi. I can also highly recommend the “Sakura roll.” Their california roll is also tasty as well as affordable. The staff is friendly, and the ambiance is relaxed. Definitely a great treat on a weekend evening.
