The Monster hears much about Sushi Yasuda and decides to give it a whirl. His New York friends trumpet the meal as the best sushi in the world. With high hopes but much skepticism he enters into the beautiful restaurant. A long sushi bar dominates much of the room with well spaced tables filling out the rest.
While there is a menu of interesting appetizers and sushi, omakase is the choice for this evening. Sitting at the sushi bar, an order of sake placed, The Monster puts himself in the hands of the sushi maestros at Yasuda.
Between the sake and the conversation The Monster remembers enjoying the meal very much and thinking that LA has quite a few places that do sushi absolutely as well if not wholly better. So if you are in New York and you have a hankering for sushi, Yasuda is most certainly an excellent choice. Then again, perhaps Angelinos should take advantage of our sushi bonanza and hit up New York for things we don’t do as well, like Italian, snow and bad accents and attitude like the yahoos sitting beside The Monster.
So, here are some pictures of the sushi consumed . If you want to know what anything is or how it tastes, make a reservation at Yasuda.
