If the phrase “affordable sushi omakase in Beverly Hills” doesn’t immediately register with your brain, that’s fine. Normal, even. It sounds like an oxymoron, akin to “jumbo shrimp” or “ethical consumption under capitalism.” But make no mistake: Sushi Tama is the real deal. The neighborhood’s latest spot has all of the trappings of a restaurant with a much higher price point, but for just $45, you can order an incredible ten-piece omakase nigiri set, which comes with smooth, buttery cuts of toro, ikura that bursts in your mouth, and fresh uni that’s been shipped from either Mexico or Japan - all of which will be patiently explained to you by a member of their waitstaff, even if you’re just grabbing the box to-go. Is Sushi Tama too good to be true? Probably. But for now, we’re not going to question it.
