SUGARFISH by Sushi Nozawa

Nozawa 2

Last week I was in LA in a business trip and while almost everyone asked me to bring them stuff, I have this dear friend whom I trust blindly when it comes to food, asked me to check one of the amazing Sushi restaurants, asked me to something for myself and that was deep, so it immediately it was top my todo list.

Once I had a spare time and was really hungry I drove to SUGARFISH by Sushi Nozawa in Santa Monica.

It’s small and very cozy restaurant, maybe could accommodate about 50 seats. Since I was alone I dined on the bar.

They have à la carte and 3 set menu which are, Trust me, trust me lite and special which is same as trust me but with an extra potion of great food.

This restaurant looked very nice, and was recommended but a very highly person so I had to go with the special, and it was

  • Organic Edamame
  • Tuna Sashimi (very yummy)
  • Albacore Sushi
  • Salmon Sushi (so tender so fresh it melt in your mouth)
  • Snapper Sushi
  • Yellowtail Sushi
  • Halibut Sushi
  • Toro hand roll
  • Blue Crab Hand roll Yellowtail hand-roll (Cuz Blue Crap had Mayo)

This set looked too much, and I thought I’m going to be full after this, but also I was so hunger that I wanted to order more, for once I was let me eat and then see if I want more.

The food kept on coming in waves one by one, and they kept just enough time to enjoy every wave of great food. It was really food from heaven.

The Tuna Sashimi comes in marinated in spiced soy sauce and topped with green onion, the balance of is so perfect. Then comes Albacore Sushi, Salmon Sushi and Snapper Sushi, they are serviced with warm rice dipped in spiced soy sauce, ready for you to JUST EAT. They are prefect as they are, you can’t make them better.

The next wave was Yellowtail Sushi, Halibut Sushi and Scallop Sushi and they were more of the same, perfect food, I never have tried some of the food I had ever before but everything was so great that I was eating anything was put infront of me.

Toro and Yellowtail Hand roll, there were more of a sandwiches than usual rolls. I was, how I’m going to eat that with chopsticks?! Well you don’t, you just eat them like sandwiches 🙂


I think this is the best sushi restaurant I’ve been to. I had a sushi meal at LA airport and Maki Kuwait in the last two days and both tasted like garbage compared to SUGARFISH.
