From the outside, Hamasaku looks like one of those uniquely-LA strip mall sushi joints, but inside feels like you might actually be in Japan, not next to a Coffee Bean. And with their $55 omakase, you get a pretty high-quality product for a very decent price. On top of all the sushi (including less-common options like cuttlefish and sardine), you get miso soup, egg custard, and dessert as part of the deal. The fish is fresh, the crowd is Westside low-key, and you’ll leave full.
