Two weeks ago I had a job interview in Watts. That’s far away so I went to a gym near there, actually in Alhambra, California. After working out I decided to have dinner at a poke restaurant near the gym. There were several Asian restaurants near that gym and i might return to try them out when I move to the city.
I ordered a standard bowl with a larger serving of protein, which in this case was diced tuna. The bowl looked pretty with all those colors. I liked it. The fish was fresh and the mix of jellyfish and rice and scallions and other vegetables was tasty.
Poke is future food, assuming tuna doesn’t go extinct.
Last week, after walking around Runyon Canyon with my brother who lives in Hollywood we went here for lunch. Sushi Stop is right next door to the Upright Citizens’ Brigade.
It was pretty cheap as sushi goes and the quality was decent. Those three pieces of sushi were only $7.
I also had sea urchin, mackerel and yellow tail. The sea urchin was okay, but then again excellent sea urchin to me is just pulled from the sea and split open.
The seaweed salad was fair and I liked the popcorn shrimp roll. It was delicious.
I would recommend Sushi Stop highly.
Runyon Canyon Park has great views at the top.
