Best Sushi In Los Angeles

  First Posted: 08/02/10 06:37 PM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 06:15 PM ET

In some parts of Los Angeles, there's a Japanese restaurant on every block, but how are you supposed to know who's got the freshest fish and best omakase? Here's Huffington Post's guide to the Top 10 sushi restaurants in Los Angeles so you'll know how to separate the wheat from the chaff -- or the sashimi from the scales, as it were. The picks range from decades-old favorite strip mall spots to "sushi nazis" in fancy-pants locations that refuse to serve wasabi or any other seasonings along with their dishes. And heaven help you if you ask for chicken teriyaki. We're expecting a lot of debate about this list, so bring it on! Did we miss your favorite sushi restaurant?

Salmon sashimi with caviar.

Besides doling out top-rate slivers of fish, Sushi Katsu-ya is also known for its inventive specials. The spicy tuna plate looks like royal pop art, with slices of ruby and slivers of jade. The albacore sashimi plate tastes like a dream, especially when you rudely awaken to find you've eaten it all. Non-sushi dishes are also top rate. Tempura is delicate and crisp, and Japanese ceviche is a taste bud-awakening medley of fish in a citrus marinade. - Martha Burr at Citysearch
