While Kogane isn’t our favorite sushi restaurant in the city (that’s a pretty high bar, after all), this high-end omakase spot is exactly what the SGV needed. Located next to a Jamba Juice and Wingstop in an Alhambra strip mall, Kogane only serves two meals: a $100 lunch omakase and a $250 dinner omakase. It’s run by two seasoned sushi chefs, who you’ll see cheerfully chatting with customers as they slice toro, red snapper, mackerel, and more into silky, uniform pieces. We prefer to come at lunch—it’s an easy, breezy hour-long meal that begins with prawn miso soup and ends with an ahi hand roll. Or a Jamba Juice, if you’re anything like us.
