Kiriko is the Sawtelle Blvd. sushi middle ground - not a cheap conveyer belt place, but also not somewhere you have to sacrifice a month of coffee money for. They do a few lunch combinations, or you can order your sushi a la carte, but omakase is really the way to go. For $48 you’ll get eight or so pieces of sushi, plus miso soup and a hand roll. The fish is fantastic quality, and they don’t just serve the greatest hits - expect Japanese barracuda, house smoked salmon, and your toro to come out seared.
