Foodie Files

Asian Eatscapades (III)

Wow, it’s been a long while since this blog has seen a Foodie Files x Asian Eatscapades post! Let’s change that today! While visiting family in Los Angeles, I unintentionally ate sushi for the entire time I was there. Sushi in the Central Valley just isn’t as good as it is down south so I definitely enjoyed all that sushi, but kinda sorta feeling sushi’d out.

Sushi Kuu

Chris and I actually ate at Sushi Kuu for a post-Valentine’s day celebration. I had worked five days (sixty hours within that time period) during that week so we decided to celebrate both the beginning of my days off and Valentine’s together! We actually had to wait around twenty minutes for a table at this place but it was definitely worth it. We ordered appetizers – fried calamari and popcorn shrimp. Chris got the Heat roll while I opted for the Dragon roll. Their eel was very fresh!


On my first day in LA, I met up with a fellow blogger and one of my favorites, Nancy. We met up in Pasadena and tried out one of her favorite sushi places, Sugarfish. They do the Nozawa-style sushi and we both ordered the Nozawa Trust Me – a little pricey at $37 but is was soooo worth. After lunch, we strolled a little bit down Fair Oaks and ended up grabbing a sweet treat at Cauldron Ice Cream.

Sushi Kuni

My family and I actually grabbed sushi for dinner as well. We visited one of our favorite sushi spots in the area, Sushi Kuni, and did the all-you-can-eat. In my opinion, they serve the best shrimp tempura and albacore sushi. Their Baked Baby Lobster is a regular favorite as well – although, this time, it seemed a little too bland for my liking.

Oke Poke

Lastly, whenever I’m in LA, I try to stop by poke joints. Poke is more Hawaiian than it really is sushi but it’s raw fish so I figured I’d add it into this mix! Oke Poke is one of my favorites, it’s priced right and they offer free avocado – who says no to free avocado?! I’ve also gotten really obsessed with adding furikake onto my poke bowls – yum.

    Yaassss, you can never go wrong with sushi!! You’re such a hustler, Eena. You’re out there kicking butt in healthcare and making some bank, holla. The calamari looks delicious!
    YASSSS SUGARFISH!! Ok, I have a love-hate relationship with it but it’s great every time. The ice cream was so cutesy! I love that your family was on a sushi vibe too. Ugh everything looks so delicious. I mean poke is basically sushi over a bowl… Can’t hate and be technical over that lol. I LOVE places with free avo ;). Thanks for letting me live through you again~

    I love sushi! The first time I ever had some was in Amsterdam (weirdly) and it was delicious. I know the concept of eating uncooked fish is a little strange for some people but it’s so healthy and delicious – or you can just go with a veggie option too. I really want to persuade Flora to try some but so far she’s proving resistant, haha. Your photos and descriptions are making my mouth water, great post, Eena!

    Oh wow, it’s been too long since I had sushi (okay, not ACTUALLY that long, but too long for me lol) and this post has me ready to make dinner plans for my husband and I! I come from a family that hardly did any seafood at all and was disturbed by the idea of sushi at first until a friend made me try it, and I’ve never looked back lol

    Oh my, super jealous of your sushi feast! I’m a big fan of Japanese food and would happily eat it every meal for the rest of my life if I could 🙃 also I think it’s funny that my neighbourhood’s got a poké joint with the same name…

    I am now so hungry after looking at all these photos of sushi! I might need to treat myself to some this weekend. Everything sounds and looks so good! I’ve heard so many people rave about Sugarfish and I need to try one of those poke bowls.
