Sharp Tea's taro smoothie was pretty good, but if it was just right at 25% sweetness, how sweet is it normally?? And they have souffle pancakes-- we have to try those on a future visit.
The very heart of Little Tokyo was a bit harder to find a plan B for tasty sushi than I expected. Outside of Sushi Gen and the new Sushi Hide (which was apparently closed for catering this evening?), there isn't much that's in the immediate area. Sushi Enya was the plan C, and it was more average than anything else. Too much decorating with truffle, searing, and whatnot, rather than relying on the fish itself to show off. Even high-end decoration with caviar and gold flake (!) didn't do much to make the meal exceptional rather than gimmicky, although the spread of black cod, black snapper, red snapper, and golden eye snapper was at least a decent start.
End result was more ordinary and reflective of decorated-roll-gimmicky than of a higher-end place. Which to be fair was at least better than the last stop of the day, the relatively new Roll Sushi in Weller Court, which is definitely a fast food sushi joint...
