There’s a lot to like about a superior sushi joint disguised as a hole in wall and located next door to a 7-Eleven. As under the radar as LA sushi gets, this restaurant on Beverly is the genuine article. There’s no real kitchen at old-school Shibucho—no menu either—just a simply appointed dining room with a display case lined with cut parsley and fresh fish. You won’t find crowds or tourists either, and nothing to distract you from the extreme quality of the sashimi and sushi. Chef Shige Kudo prepares traditional sushi only (no California rolls), and his fresh toro slices (in season, only) go amazingly well with a bottle of red.

Insider Tip:

Chef Shige-san and staff are not the warm and fuzzy types, but they know their stuff. If they make a recommendation, take them up on it.
