This strip mall spot is a very good place for affordable sushi. Try to grab one of the five seats at the Dodger bobblehead-decorated bar and order the No. 8 Special. It involves nine pieces of sushi and two rolls, and at $13.50, it’s the most expensive thing on the menu. Add on an order of the fantastic, salty mirugai (giant geoduck clam) if they have it.
