DINING REVIEW: SUSHIHOLIC – A LA MIRADA FAVORITE

BY TAMMYE MCDUFF

Established in 2013, La Mirada’s Sushiholic prides their menu in serving ‘no-frills, lip-smacking Japanese fare’, with fresh fish delivered daily. The restaurant is owned and operated by the Kim  family, self proclaimed, genuine sushi-holics. 

Customers are greeted at the door by Lim with a respectful bow and “Irasshaimase”, which roughly translated means ‘Welcome to the store, come on in!’ 

“We work hard to craft no-frills Japanese cuisine without the pretentiousness,” says Manager Andy Kim, “whether you’re a traditionalist or a non-sushi person, our food is for you. We don’t serve what doesn’t get us hooked ourselves. This kind of dedication to an addiction is what sets up apart.”

HMG had the opportunity to drop in on this La Mirada favorite and it was a pleasant surprise. The restaurant has a dozen tables and at lunch time during the week, the place was packed.

If you are a traditionalist, then you must try the Edomae-style sushi and sashimi. If you love sushi rolls then try the ‘Pink Lady’ or the lip smacking ‘Love Love’ roll. 

If you have a sweet tooth then order the ‘Sweet Hawaiian’ or ‘Mango Salmon Roll’.  If you are not one to touch raw fish, not to worry the menu has numerous items to choose from. The teriyaki selections are made from scratch, meat is trimmed by hand, and the sauce is whipped up fresh every morning. 

“Thanks to the gracious support of our customers, our little restaurant has been thriving for the past several years. Food is our passion and sushi is the name of our game,” says Kim, “our commitment to you and our craft is serious. Your satisfaction makes our hard work and dedication effortless. We thank you for your continued love and support.”

Sushiholic is located at 15749 E Imperial Hwy, La Mirada, in the Green Hills Plaza shopping center on the corner of Imperial Highway and Santa Gertrudes.
