A little piece of me died today… I just found out my favorite sushi restaurant Akasaka was sold and the new owner is killing this legendary spot. Akasaka in Hacienda Heights was the best sushi restaurant in LA and I have been eating there for years. It wasn’t the fanciest place, but it served great quality fish and the owner provided huge portions. Although you paid a good amount of money, you got your money’s worth. At least, that is how I felt before their new owner took over. Here are some pictures to show you what you use to get when you would eat at Akasaka.

Akasaka was closed for “renovations” for a while, but when they re-opened it was clear that there were new owners because it was all new staff and the original owner (sushi chef) wasn’t there anymore. I haven’t been back since the new owners took over, but from what I can see on Yelp, the Akasaka I once new is dead.
