It has been years since The Monster has been to Wa Sushi. His first house in Los Angeles was up Laurel Canyon near the Country Store (it was Boris Karloff’s first house in LA as well for movie buffs) and he used to frequent places like Wa and loved the lobster that tasted like cotton candy. Once The Monster moved to Santa Monica places like Wa came off the regular rotation. Would Wa hold up?
With a small sushi bar (8 or so spots) and 6 tables plus one small private room with a TV playing weird commercials Wa is a small space with high energy. Jazz is playing and the crowd is hopping. That it is on the second floor of a nondescript mini-mall is pure LA.
