Hidden Little Tokyo: Oomasa Restaurant

As part of the 130th Anniversary of Little Tokyo (2014), I've been spending time visiting some of my old favorite places and being introduced to new ones in Little Tokyo.  One of my favorites for sushi is Oomasa Restaurant on the 1st Street entrance to Japanese Village Plaza.

When I do visit Oomasa, I usually come in for sushi

 Halibut Sushi
with salt and yuzukosho

This is my favorite way to eat white fish,
add a squeeze of lemon too...

Spanish Mackerel

Santa Barbara Sea Urchin 

It was very good,
but then again I've had really good seafood here.

Ending the meal with the head of the 
Santa Barbara Sweet Shrimp
in miso soup

Man cannot live on sushi alone,
I know a lot of you will disagree.
Please no DM.
