Don’t Miss the Sashimi Lunch Platter at Sushi Gen in Los Angeles

March 18, 2015 9:00 am

Locals recommend Sushi Gen primarily for its sashimi lunch platter, which consists of a full plate of mixed sashimi for a reasonable price. Sushi Gen also offers a tempura lunch special, but some say it’s not as good as the locally famous sashimi platter. Be advised that even on a weekday at lunchtime, you’ll find a line snaking out the door of this popular restaurant—but that just speaks to the level of dedication among its fans. You might want to show up a little early if you’re very hungry or have to be back at work quickly.

Dinnertime prices are a little higher than some other sushi restaurants in the area, but the sushi is of superior quality. Regulars recommend the golden eye snapper roll, the spicy tuna roll, and the eel roll. Definitely get the omakase! No matter what you order, chefs promise to craft it with skill and style at Sushi Gen.

Sushi Gen
422 E. 2nd Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012
