Zen Mondo is something of an oasis among the noise and bustle of Angel. The low-key Japanese restaurant is easy to miss—sandwiched between an estate agent and a hair salon. But once inside you’ll find that this is a calming shelter making crowd-pleasing sushi, as well as some lovely handmade ceramics. Temaki and chirashi are particularly good and, although the highly enjoyable menu is classic rather than anything particularly exciting (yellowtail, scallop, chu-toro tuna, and the like), the clean pinewood room and its soundtrack of lightly tapping chopsticks against plates make it a solid spot for a relaxing midweek dinner.
