Hidden Little Tokyo: Suehiro Cafe

As part of the 130th Anniversary of Little Tokyo, I've started to take a look at some of the hidden gems in the Downtown area.  For those who have followed my food adventure know that I grew up not to far from here.  We would come to Little Tokyo for dinner and to shop.  A lot of the shops are now gone, but a few of the food places are still around.  One of the places which has been open for over 40 years is Suehiro Cafe.

on 1st Street

I love that they stay open late
and have a variety of dishes
and sushi rolls at night.

I've asked a few people where they go for good food at lunch

It's been awhile since I've been and forgot about the variety
of dishes they serve AND their lunch specials.
