Back in the Flektor days (2007 and 2008) I used to go to K-Zo as it was the only sushi place in Culver City (where our offices were). At the time I thought it was fine, if not particularly memorable. I hadn’t been in 10 years, but a friend of mine wanted to go so let’s look at it with fresh eyes.
The chef himself. We ordered the omakase — as that’s the only way to go.
Bonito maybe, or another meaty fish.
Sweet shrimp with the head fried. All at the same time, which is convenient.
Kohada or something in that family.
Toro taku handroll. Always love these.
Blue crab handroll.
A bit of fruit.
Overall, K-Zo was quite solid. Pretty straightforward real LA style sushi (i.e. a good bit of ponzu) with high quality fish and a solid nigiri presentation. Maybe a hair better than Sasebune and not quite as good as, but more reasonably priced, than nearby Zo. I’d certainly dig into this fish again and I’m a big fan of straight nigiri like this.
