Sushi Akatora in Manhattan Beach

Pin It


If you're a fan of Katsu Manhattan Beach,
you know the restaurant has closed and
reopened under a new name.

The space was taken over by
restauranteur Michael Cardenas
of Sushi Roku and Lazy Ox. 
Sushi Akatora has a new rustic look
and the menu has an izakaya focus.

Don't worry, you can still get sushi.

Arrived for dinner and sat at the sushi bar.


Halibut Carpaccio

Thinly sliced halibut sashimi with yuzu pepper
and pink peppercorns.

I love a good Halibut with a simple preparation.


 Brussels Sprouts

Quick sautéed with Akatora original
Asian rya-yu

A bit crunchy


 Kobe Beef Corn Dogs
Kobe beef corn dog with
dijon mustard and ketchup

Not exactly fair food, but an upscale
version of this American favorite.
I really liked the house made Kobe beef corn dog.



It was good seeing my friend Chef Katsu 
and having him serve really good sushi.  

If you stop in, say hello to him for me.


Black Sea Breem sushi
served two ways.

It was the first time I've had
a Black Sea Breem
(that I can remember)
and was very good.


 Santa Barbara Uni

Nuff said...


 Finishing up with two of my favorites,
Sea Urchin and Spanish Mackerel sushi.


The end to a beautiful day
and meal at Sushi Akatora

I'll be back again!
