Place Yuu (Sawtelle)

By in 12: Sawtelle

Yuu was a sushi bar/Izakaya place at the corner of the Sawtelle mall I frequent, yet I tend to walk pass it for some reason. I was told that it was recently renovated. Now it’s more slick and less of a salaryman vibe kind of place. Very good Beef Tongue stew. Aji Sashimi. Wow this […]

BiMi Restaurant (Brentwood)

By in 11: West LA

The space was replaced by a Korean Japanese izakaya chain called Raku (the original is at Westside).
