We Love Takeout From Fish Eight

Our favorite affordable sushi takeout on Melrose.

There are few things more satisfying in life (OK, besides this video) than simple, quality sushi at affordable prices. And in LA, we’re lucky to have dozens of options to fulfill such needs. But one place we continue to go back to for takeout is Fish Eight.

The tiny sushi bar on Melrose is owned and operated by the upscale Jinpachi, one of our favorite spots for fresh fish in West Hollywood - but where higher price points mean we can’t visit weekly. Fish Eight is the antithesis of that. Here, you can expect a tight menu consisting of fresh, simple nigiri, premium chirashi bowls for $28, and an efficient takeout system that’ll have your order ready in 20 minutes or less. The most expensive items on the menu are generally the specialty rolls, and while they’re a great option for takeout, we usually bypass them in lieu of more nigiri instead. Not just because they’re insanely fresh and delicious, but at $7, you’d pay double anywhere else.

What to Order

Nigiri - Whether it be salmon, toro, yellowtail, or red snapper, expect some of the freshest sushi for the price in West Hollywood. They offer a $28 omakase platter that gets you eight pieces of the chef’s choosing, so just do that, and then throw in a few extra orders of nigiri on top.

Sunomono - This cucumber and seaweed salad is simple, fresh, and fantastic. We never start a Fish Eight order without one.

Baked Crab Handroll - If you do one roll at Fish Eight, make it the baked crab handroll. Are there better versions around town? Sure, but this one is pretty good too and a great way to end the meal.
