Craving Haru Sushi Cafe

How can we tell when a restaurant is good? When it’s consistently packed, all night long on a random work night, like it was at Haru Sushi Cafe in West Hollywood. I was introduced to this Japanese restaurant by Marshall and Face and all I can say is that is Haru (the chef), you sure know how to makes some great sushi! The three of us shared the Shishito Pepper Saute Appetizer and Haru’s Organic Seaweed & Cucumber Sunomono Style Salad. I ordered the Combination Sashimi Dinner (Chef Haru’s choice of assorted sashimi) from the Sushi Bar with brown rice, served with a green house salad and miso soup and the Lotus Roll. I also tried the Island Roll (shrimp tempura and crab roll covered with salmon and avocado served with soy citrus dressing) and yes, Haru, it was delicious, thank you very much. I was very impressed with the quality of the food served. The sashimi was fresh and the texture was smooth and buttery. We can also tell when a restaurant is good when we know for sure that we’ll be coming back. The sign on the red awning out front of the restaurants reads “Modern Japanese Cuisine,” so it may be easy to miss; however, just as I was introduced to Haru, most good restaurants get introduced by recommendation. So, take it from me, a newly converted Haru Sushi Lover, it’s good!
