Jonathan Gold visits one of the most dependably delicious sushi restaurants in Los Angeles, Hiko Sushi. The restaurant has strict rules -- patrons must order a minimum of four dishes, anyone who sits at the sushi bar must do Amakase (chef’s choice) and when you are served sushi you must eat the accompanying rice. The house policies create an environment of high expectations, which the food actually transcends. Hiko serves traditional sushi only -- no tempura, no teriyaki and no California rolls, but the combination of steaming hot rice and soft fish are a delectable and mouth-watering mixture.
11275 National Blvd.
