Murakami Sushi

$$$$(323) 692-1450

When it comes to affordable, quality sushi bowls, Murakami is still our favorite spot in town. The tiny restaurant on Melrose has a full menu of solid offerings, but it’s their giant bowls (ranging from $17-$25) that keep us coming back. Our favorites include the mixed, a straight-forward order of tuna, salmon, albacore, yellowtail, and shrimp, as well as the spicy trio - a fiery bowl of chopped tuna, yellowtail, and salmon bathed in a slightly-spicy mayo, which makes for a perfect WFH lunch, solo dinner, or even leftover breakfast, straight from the fridge.
