The aboriginal “exotic” sushi cycle I encountered was the iconic California Cycle — technically a makisushi absolute cucumber, backtalk (real or otherwise) and avocado, sesame seeds and aerial angle roe, generally formed central out. It stands in adverse to the added acceptable nigiri sushi — the bolus of rice with a allotment of beginning angle layered on top, captivated in abode with a band of seaweed.
The California Cycle aboriginal appeared on the beginning sushi arena ashamed in the backward 1970s. And it’s apparently from California. But as ever, there are disputes. Culinary agent belief are rarely simple.
As a local, I’ve continued been blessed to acclaim the California Cycle to sushi chef Ichiro Mashita, who created the cycle at Tokyo Kaikan in Little Tokyo. I’ve additionally apparent it accustomed to chef Ken Seusa at Kin Jo in Hollywood. And to Hidekazu Tojo in Vancouver.
In Japan, it’s accepted as Kashu Maki — and yes, it does abide over there. But back it comes to the madcap, abreast absurd apple of alien sushi rolls, we’ve gone far aloft the bashful California Roll. At abounding roll-heavy sushi bars, it’s listed beneath “standard rolls.” Exotica has its own section. And it can be alarming and absurd at the above time. There are no best boundaries; if it can be imagined, with a appropriately over-the-top name, it can be made.
And with some ample advice from the apparatus of the Ambrosial Adolescent Roll, which is accustomed accurately to chef Jean Nakayama at Maneki actuality in Los Angeles, who came up with the abstraction of bond $.25 of adolescent (scraps if you wish) with chili sauce, and rolling them with rice, the mix again captivated in the assured area of nori. After the angle of ambrosial sauce, abounding of the tsunami of alien rolls wouldn’t exist. Add on tempuraed capacity for crispness, and — yes! — chrism cheese, and you accept a abreast absolute cardinal of variations.
And an absolute array isn’t overstating the cardinal of rolls out there. Last time I alone by a accidental café alleged the California Cycle Factory in West LA, I counted added than a hundred rolls on the menu, and wouldn’t be afraid if there were added by now.
I ran into the botheration I’ve generally encountered in alien cycle joints — I couldn’t acquaint one from the added after a roadmap. And already they started arriving, my table went into a agriculture frenzy, wolfing bottomward the rolls after beat or reason. They aloof tasted so…good. They were messy, and they fell apart, and the capacity all got abstruse together. But no bulk — they were so…yummy.
This is sushi bare of subtlety or understatement. This is the Californification of sushi. Am I offended? I assumption I would be — if I wasn’t so active eating, at alien cycle hotbeds like these…
1200 Pacific Coast Hwy., Hermosa Beach, 310-318-2781; 3963 Pacific Coast Hwy., Torrance, 310-378-2990; 1150 Morningside Drive, Manhattan Beach, 310-802-1160; www.ilovefusionsushi.com
Since aperture its aboriginal annex in Torrance, Admixture Sushi has acquired from a arrangement sushi aperture into, well, a arrangement sushi aperture with a big following.
What’s absolutely fun actuality is to run amok through the Admirable Apple of Wacky Rolls. There are 40 of them, disconnected neatly into Chef Appropriate Rolls and Tempura Appropriate Rolls.
To abridge the descriptives, anniversary cycle is burst bottomward into what’s “in” and what’s “out.” Thus we acquisition that the Red Dragon Cycle ($9.99) is salmon, mango and avocado “in,” and ambrosial adolescent and shrimp “out.” The Tommy Cycle is shrimp tempura and crabmeat “in,” and broiled ambrosial adolescent “out.” The Energy Cycle is shrimp tempura and ambrosial adolescent “in,” and unagi and avocado “out.”
For those who don’t appetite to absorb abundant time cerebration about what to order, there’s an absorbing alternative of pre-assembled Boat Dinners (referred to on the card as “Chef’s Boat Party”). The ambit goes from the Love Boat, up to the Admixture Boat, which comes with bristles types of sushi, bristles types of sashimi, and seven appropriate rolls. If you charge more, they accomplish a accomplished adjustment of barbecued Korean beef here, and Korean beef ribs, forth with broiled eel aloft onions, and a acclaimed adjustment of Chilean sea bass in a miso soy. Which as ever, is candied and bendable as butter.
In agreement of the name, best of the admixture at Admixture is begin in the appropriate rolls, abounding of which would account alarm in Tokyo. Admitting these days, that may not absolutely be true. Japanese affable has absolutely accepted the joys of mayonnaise. There’s no acumen to accept they’re not inhaling chrism cheese on the Ginza, as in the case of the Hot & Hot Cycle — jalapeños, ambrosial adolescent and chrism cheese “in,” avocado “out.” Which is about as admixture as admixture can be.
Sushi Gone Wild
24004 Vista Montana, Torrance; 310-373-0706, www.sushigonewild.com
A contempo annual report, accent “Put your easily aloft your head, and footfall away from the California roll,” abreast us that, “The Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries is in the action of creating a aggregation of sushi police, who will biking away to accolade those few Japanese restaurants who accomplish archetypal sushi (and archetypal sushi only) with certificates of authenticity.” The abstraction is to arrest the boundless acceptance of California rolls, ambrosial adolescent rolls, caterpillar rolls, bubble rolls, brittle tempura rolls and the like, all of which are beheld as comestible abominations by purists.
According to the Ministry, added than 20,000 restaurants alfresco of Japan “claim” to be Japanese — but alone a adored few absolutely are. There is, of course, a big chaw of irony to be had here. For while the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries may be taken ashamed by the California cycle and the ambrosial adolescent roll, the sushi confined of Tokyo are rather addicted of them. I’ve been in Tokyo abundant times. And admitting there are absolutely affluence of restaurants that serve annihilation but acceptable sushi preparations, there are affluence added that accept appropriately accepted the apple of crackpot sushi rolls.
And that embrace absolutely runs agrarian at a tiny South Bay collective alleged Sushi Gone Wild, which sits in an abnormally configured arcade centermost at the bend of Vista Montana and PCH. Vista Montana is absolutely Anza Boulevard, but with a name change that happens as it crosses the road. You may accept to drive about the capital a time or two addition out how you get from the parking lot to the restaurant, for the restaurant faces the artery while the lot doesn’t. Which may or may not accomplish sense. Whatever the case, Sushi Gone Agrarian can absolutely alive up to its name.
There’s a area of the card committed to “50% off rolls” — the rolls are apparent amid $6 and $9.99, but you pay amid $3 (for a Shrimp Tempura Duke Roll) and $4.99 (for the California Tempura Roll, the Ambrosial Adolescent Tempura Roll, the Ambrosial Craven Tempura Roll, the Calamari Tempura Roll, the Ambrosial Cockle Tempura Roll, and the TNT Roll). Alike the non-discount sushi is well-priced.
A third of the card is committed to “Not 50% off exceptional rolls.” (That’s absolutely what it says on the menu.) There are 24 of them. And best are appealing zany. I mean, back the Bubble Cycle (a California Cycle topped with bristles types of fish), and the Spider Cycle (a absurd soft-shell backtalk cycle with backtalk inside) assume mundane, you apperceive we’re not in Kansas anymore.
There is, for instance, the Aperitive Brittle Calamari Tempura Roll, which is account acclimation aloof so you can say, “Yeah, uh, I’ll accept a Aperitive Brittle Calamari Tempura Roll, abundant on the aperitive and the crunchy” — or article like that. It’s a cycle of tempuraed calamari, backtalk and chrism cheese alloyed with rice, topped with a hyper-crunchy cracker fabricated of tempura batter. It’s a action amid crisis and ooze, chewy and unctuous. It sounds a bit off, but it tastes absurdly good. I acquainted absurd affection it as abundant as I did.
Then, there’s the Machu Picchu Roll, which seems to accept little to do with the age-old Inca burghal of Machu Picchu, and not abundant added to do with Peru, except that there’s cilantro on the dish, which I assumption is affectionate of South American. Forth with the cilantro, there’s ambrosial tuna, agglutinate eggs, jalapeño $.25 and a salsa that’s added Mexican than Peruvian. But I artifice — the being is good, a lot of cycle for $7.95.
The Lobster Cycle isn’t aloof a lobster roll. It’s a Shrimp Tempura Roll, gussied up with a atom of crab, topped with a decidedly ample bulk of broiled lobster. Conceivably the oddest cycle is the White Lion Roll, which turns out to be a California Cycle topped with broiled halibut and avocado. Or, conceivably it’s the Sunny David Bubble Roll, and abundantly circuitous conception of shrimp tempura and backtalk inside, captivated in bristles types of angle and crab, with cockle bloom and a candied & acerb booze drizzled over everything. It’s not so abundant a agreeable sushi roll, as it is a sushi cycle ambrosia — stick a candle in it, and you could sing “Happy Birthday.”
There’s a Hot Night Cycle (shrimp tempura, crab, ambrosial tuna), a Vista Montana Cycle (five kinds of fish, all deep-fried, with chrism cheese and soy paper), an Aloha Hawaii Cycle (a California Cycle with mango), a Double Shrimp Cycle (shrimp central and out) and more.
There are appetizers with names like Monkey Ball (it’s a blimp mushroom) and Heart Attack (spicy adolescent in a jalapeño, deep-fried). By comparison, the udon bowls assume absolute mundane, the ambrosial adolescent basin a basin blessed enjoyed by children.
If you can’t accomplish up your mind, there’s a Sushi Cycle Combo of Crisis Rolls, Ambrosial Adolescent Rolls and Eel Rolls, served with miso soup and a salad, for all of $11.99. Is it any admiration the abode is arranged all the time?
The Grand Sushi
357 Main St., El Segundo; 310-648-8671, www.restaurantji.com/ca/el-segundo/the-grand-sushi-restaurant-/
What was B.A.D. Sushi is now The Grand Sushi. But otherwise, it’s the above restaurant — bottomward to the above old website. B.A.D. stood for “Best and Delicious.” Which is true. But alike added than that, this is berserk all-embracing sushi — a abutting bearing abstraction that takes the rolls we know, and sends them into hyperdrive.
Nigiri is begin on the account menu, and on the beyond card as a best of three aggregate plates (two of which are spiced up with California cycle and ambrosial adolescent roll). Otherwise, B.A.D. is all about “special rolls” and “specials from the sushi bar” and “Carpaccio” (misspelled as “Cappacio” on the menu).
It’s additionally all about teriyaki and abbreviate ribs and udon and alike Chinese shu mai and egg rolls. It’s about giving you whatever you want. Which in my case are lots of specials, rolls and otherwise.
Some of the dishes are added like comestible jigsaw puzzles — or maybe Rubik’s Cubes — than they are like sushi bar creations. Consider the basin alleged “Love Love.” It gets its name (I think) from the actuality that it looks like a brace of Valentine’s Day hearts on a plate. Hearts fabricated out of salmon, tuna, shrimp and backtalk salad, alluringly captivated in comestible soy paper. It’s a admirable dish, with alone a distinct downside — it vanishes far too fast.
Complications (and funny names) abound. There’s a Grand Guignol basin alleged “Bloody Friend.” It’s not abnormally bloody, admitting it is characteristic — a ball band of cut rolls with shrimp tempura and avocado within, adolescent without, and a brownish candied & ambrosial booze anointing the accomplished creation.
There’s “Cute Devil” — shrimp tempura and ambrosial backtalk salad, topped with salmon, tuna, avocado, and added ambrosial backtalk salad, with added of that candied & ambrosial sauce. Like I said, complications aural complications. Admitting honestly, best diners wouldn’t apprehension if the ambrosial backtalk bloom were replaced with ambrosial tuna, or with ambrosial shrimp.
The assignment actuality is to eat — fast and bent and with lots of fun. It’s adamantine to anticipate about diet back the rolls are accession crazy fast. Alike the egg rolls are acceptable — admitting unexpected. But they’re not on the card as a sop for those who don’t dig fish. They’re there because they’re good…not bad.
Hoka Hoka Sushi & Sake is a blithe place. And really, back you accept a name like “Hoka Hoka” (which sounds like a ball done by Barney the amethyst dinosaur), and a account of bisected a hundred sakes to accept from — well, boy howdy! You’re gonna be jolly!
This may be the best airy sushi collective — in a close of the dupe arranged with airy sushi joints. The South Bay is the Blessed Sushi Cycle Capital of the World!
And (along with all those sakes) sushi rolls are what Hoka Hoka is all about. The abode is a affair — at atomic it was in the Afore Times. For now, we’ll accept to achieve for takeout and commitment of the crazy rolls cranked out by the sushi chefs with alarming speed.
There are some 60 rolls listed on the menu, forth with a agglomeration added hand-written on a board. The choices are encyclopedic. And, as ever, the names of the rolls and the rolls themselves, are a aberrant match. (This is a well-honored tradition. The accidental names are absolutely affectionate of entertaining. And affectionate of irrelevant.)
There is, for instance, the Normandie Cycle — an admirably beefy conception of ambrosial tuna, shrimp tempura, salmon, avocado and cucumber. The Vegas Cycle is salmon, crabmeat and chrism cheese in a deep-fried wrapper. There’s annihilation abnormally blooming about the Blooming Bamboo Cycle — apricot tempura, ambrosial crabmeat and avocado…okay, the avocado is green, but still.
You’d amount the Aloha Cycle ability be fabricated with pineapple. It’s not — it’s ambrosial tuna, albacore, cucumber and avocado. It is what it is.
And sometimes, I admiration if it alike affairs which rolls you order, for the credibility of aberration can be small.
I’ve been to commons area bisected a dozen altered rolls appearance up. As a rule, you aloof grab whatever happens to be abutting at duke — aggravating to dispense one of the added rolls afterpiece afore they’re all gobbled up. It’s a lot like the dim sum acquaintance — you grab whatever you can from the rolling carts, not absolutely because whether the dumplings are abounding with pork, shrimp, chicken, beef, cod or bok choy.
In this case, there are alien rolls and alien sakes. Which action a abundant accord of achievement — alike if you’re not absolutely abiding of what you’re drinking, and of what you’re eating. You’re accomplishing the Hoka Hoka. And you’ll footfall out in the night activity aloof fine.
Rok Sushi Kitchen
1200 Hermosa Ave., Hermosa Beach; 310-798-4765
I do admiration if there’s a burghal adjustment that demands the attendance of a sushi bar at 1200 Hermosa Ave. Club Sushi seemed to be a accoutrement on the bend forever. And Rok is a avant-garde adaptation of the South Bay appearance of Japanese restaurant — which is loud, lively, cocktail-driven, and heavily skewed against rolls that would accept the traditionalist chefs at hardline spots like Sushi Nozawa (in Studio City) and Sasabune (in West LA) throwing themselves on their knives.
Those places won’t serve California Cycle or Ambrosial Adolescent Roll. Can you brainstorm how they’d coil their aperture in disapproval at the afterimage of a Philly Tempura Roll? In agreement of alien sushi rolls, some are aces — and some are fabulously weird. But what the heck — they’re all interesting.
I like the shock of the new — alike if it doesn’t consistently work. (There’s a restaurant city that makes matzoh assurance captivated in bacon. Some like it. I don’t.) In the case of the Doctrinaire Sushi places, the bulletin seems to be you charge eat the above food, every time. Why? Variety, as they say, is the aroma of life. And at Rok Sushi, there’s a lot of spice.
The rolls — the sine qua non, the raison d’être of Rok — are absolutely article to behold. For those who alive a simple, apostolic life, there are simple, apostolic rolls — the archetypal California Roll, the consistently reliable Eel Roll, the could-be-crunchier Apricot Skin Roll, the heavily brindled Ambrosial Adolescent Roll.
Then, there’s a bit of a average branch of rolls, partway twixt the abstract and the exotics. Like the Caterpillar Cycle (eel and avocado), the Bubble Cycle (crab, tuna, yellowtail, salmon, shrimp and whitefish), and the M-80 Cycle (albacore, Cajun tuna, avocado).
The best alien of the exotics at Rok are on a folio aggregate with the sashimi platters, accent aboriginal “specialty rolls” and again “signature rolls.” The above Bruce Lee Cycle is a California Cycle topped with broiled scallops, agglutinate eggs, ambrosial mayo and eel booze — a cycle and again some.
The Aspen Snow Backtalk Cycle mixes ambrosial adolescent and avocado with backtalk meat. The Philly Tempura Cycle takes the basal Philly Cycle (salmon, chrism cheese, agglutinate eggs, avocado) and gives it a nice brittle wrapper. There’s a Nacho Cycle that has little to do with nachos — it’s shrimp tempura and albacore with marinated onions.
But then, the names of alien rolls are commonly a bit random. I mean, shouldn’t the Hawaiian Cycle accept pineapple to be Hawaiian? And for that matter, the Blubbery Cycle isn’t abnormally blubbery — indeed, it should apparently be alleged a Kitchen Sink Roll. It consists of shrimp tempura, shrimp, tuna, salmon, yellowtail, asparagus, ambrosial tuna, crab, agglutinate eggs and ambrosial mayo.
