Japanese cuisine is known for exceptional seafood, and the Los Angeles area is a world-renowned foodie scene. It’s the perfect combination to create a region with famous Japanese cuisine, and it all starts at Sushi Noguchi. Start with the crab ensemble and baked asparagus before choosing one of the many rolls from Anaheim’s top-ranked sushi joints. Full dinners of sea bass, wagyu steak and pork belly are also tempting treats.
Biyako is where you’ll find a number of locals dining, enjoying the beef don and sashimi platters. Hand roll options include albacore, shrimp tempura, salmon, scallop and veggie options. With the classic rolls, you can get soft-shell crab, tuna rolls, salmon skin and, of course, the California roll. For dessert, try the mochi or tempura ice cream.
