A Tale of Two Sushi Combo Plates

Yoshi's Sushi in West Hollywood

Am I a sushi snob?

Well. Yes and no.

I do like super fresh awesome sushi that melts in your mouth. I’m not overly fond of rolls, especially the sort that has a lot of sauces and things.

But on the other hand, I rarely eat sushi because I am a snob and every time I eat mediocre sushi, I get just a little bit more sad for myself. Why did I stoop to that combo?

Oh yeah, because super fresh awesome sushi tends to be expensive. Which is why at I order some sort of combo. This week, I had the roll and 8 piece combo at Ami Sushi in Westwood and the roll and 6 piece combo at Yoshi’s Sushi in West Hollywood. If I was to compare the two, Yoshi was so much better. The fish was fresher, more neatly sliced and the rice was fine compared to Ami’s stringy, not very good quality fish and hard stale rice.

Yet, I probably had better sushi at Boss Sushi a few weeks back. Granted I did do the omakase rather than a simple combo.

Next time I’m just going to eat some noodles and be much happier at these little sushi-yas.
