Rate-A-Restaurant #345: What The Fish Sushi (Silver Lake)
Restaurant: What The Fish Sushi
Location: 2804 Hyperion Ave (Silver Lake)
Type of restaurant: Sushi
We stipulated: We're always looking for a cheap sushi joint, like our standby Blue Fish in Montrose. We ate for years at Pazazz Sushi in Silver Lake, but always walk by WTF while visiting the Silver Lake outpost of Trader Joe's. It was finally time to go inside.
They stipulated: Their delivery area is quite wide: Atwater Village, Glassell Park, Griffith Park, Hollywood, Los Angeles City College, Wilshire Center, Silver Lake and Los Feliz. Minimum order: $15.
What we ordered: Dinner Sushi Combination (Served with sushi 7 pcs -- tuna, salmon, shrimp, albacore, yellowtail, red snapper and eel), miso soup and spicy tuna roll 8 pcs) $13.95; shishito pepper $3.95; shrimp tempura $7.95; shrimp tempira roll $3.95; California roll $3.95
High point: The prices are fantastic, and the rolls are quite imaginative.
Low point: The shishito pepper portion was disappointingly small -- but had a nice, slightly citrus flavor, so we forgave it.
Overall impression: Listen, this isn't high-end sushi. That's not the point. Especially with kids in tow, we're just looking to get our sushi fix as economically as possible -- but I'd still like the sushi to be edible. WTF is more than just edible, it's actually quite good.
Will we return: We will!
