Master Chef Hiro came to LA from Japan with the goal of recreating as high-quality an experience as he had delivered in Tokyo. His fish (from brilliantly briny mackerel to melt-in-your-mouth salmon) is exceptional, along with his rice, which is far more al dente than you’ve been grown to expect. Omakase-only, Q Sushi features <em>20</em> courses of Hiro's choice every night.
Yeah, it’s a wallet-buster. But it still may be dollar-for-dollar the best sushi in town. Master chef Hiro came to LA from Japan with a goal of recreating the high-quality experience he once delivered in Tokyo. His fish (from brilliantly briny mackerel to melt-in-your-mouth salmon) is exceptional—aged, cured, or temperature-adjusted to coax out its optimal flavor profile. Meanwhile, the rice—flavored with red vinegar brewed from aged sake cakes and sea salt—is no afterthought. Q’s daily omakase menu changes daily, so expect a parade of stunning sashimi and nigiri courses, each one perfectly balanced for size, appearance, temperature, texture, and taste.
