One of the last few true hole-in-the-wall sushi places, plus the unique feature that they use brown rice. Menu is a bit limited (probably due to the size of the restaurant and the clientele) but for what it is, it works pretty well. Quality of the fish is actually pretty good, but the amount of wasabi under each piece of nigiri was a bit of a surprise ('cause I added my own wasabi without thinking to check!). The truffle salt albacore roll was an interesting gimmick; it's a mild enough flavor in the albacore that it works, but also hard to say it's a real draw. Finally the Chewbacca roll was pretty ordinary, so the final verdict on this hole-in-the-wall is that it's cute enough for locals, but hard to say it's actually noteworthy.
Dinner the next day at All That Barbecue in Irvine. Definitely doesn't compare to the better places in k-town as far as food quality, but the service was excellent, and even at 5:45pm they had a 45 minute wait. o_0 The cute menu names are fun, but skip the Winnie-the-Pooh rice cake thing.
