Sushi Chitose has a fantastic, affordable omakase in an almost impossible-to-spot building on PCH. It gets pretty crowded, so come early or make a reservation, preferably at the bar where you can watch baseball behind the heads of the people preparing your fish. For $45, you’ll get somewhere around 15 pieces of fish, and the $60 premium option adds on an appetizer, some belly cuts, and a dessert. All the sushi here is great, but you’ll probably end up asking for another piece of the fantastic, shiso-topped snapper.
