If you’re solely on the hunt for great sashimi, head to Hama. You’ll notice signs around this busy Little Tokyo bar that warn, “No teriyaki, No tempura, No noodle, No rice alone,” so don’t bring your non-fish-eating friend who orders four rounds of gyoza. À la carte and set menus are available—the latter includes various sashimi, miso soup, and a basic California roll that does the job. The à la carte menu offers more wiggle room for sampling, including buttery uni nigiri, a seared albacore sashimi platter with citrusy ponzu, and some excellent toro that is somehow both delicate and beefy in flavor. Plentiful options aside, the best part about Hama is that it offers affordable but high-quality fish in a casual, intimate setting.
