LOS ANGELES | Sushi Gen is a Little Tokyo Japanese restaurant that’s built quite the reputation since opening in 1980 as serving some of the best sushi in Los Angeles, at prices that are very reasonable given the quality of the fish. After 37 years in the game, these guys know how to source some of the best quality, freshest fish in town.

For an unforgettable meal, head to the sushi bar for the full omakase experience, and talk to the chefs as they expertly prepare each piece of sushi before your eyes. If you’re not up for that, or simply want something less costly, line up for a seat in the separate dining room, where you can order things like the famous and super popular sushi platter. You get thick cuts of tuna, yellowtail, salmon, toro, squid, three varieties of chopped fish, a broiled fish, miso soup, cucumber salad, and soft tofu. At lunch, it’s one of the best bang-for-your-buck options around for $17.00, and at dinner, despite being more expensive, it’s still excellent value.

Just make sure that if you want to eat at Sushi Gen, you get there early. At lunch, for example, there’s already a line by midday. Reservations are available but are limited, so make sure you call at least a week in advance if you want to reserve a spot.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
