Inspired by the seafood-rich coasts of Hokkaido, the Hokkai Don at this new Silver Lake spot is filled with near-symmetrical rows of salmon, blue crab, and salmon roe. It’s a simple chirashi — way less extravagant than some of the other boxes on this list — but that doesn’t mean the fish quality is any less high. The crab meat is soft and slightly salty, hotate scallops are creamy and sprinkled in furikake, and for ikura lovers, you’ll get beyond a generous portion of the juicy, bright-orange salmon roe. It’s a straightforward, well-organized meal. If you’re a Wes Anderson completist or receive The Container Store gift cards on your birthday, this might be the chirashi for you.
