Food Porn Friday | Octopus Sushi | Long Beach

Friday, April 08, 2011


If y'all know me and the bf, we are both extremely particular about our sushi. We will never, ever (again, minus the teenage years) eat sushi a) from a buffet, b) on a rotating belt, c) located in a shopping mall, or d) from any establishment that also serves chicken teriyaki, which coincidentally includes all of the above. 

You may not think that leaves much else, but I know good sushi when I see/smell/eat it...and sorry to burst them bubbles, but it ain't coming from any of these joints honey. Call me snooty, stuck-up, snobbish, or straight up sushi nazi, but whatever your choice words, you definitely can't knock me for champagne wishes and caviar dreams.


So when the sis and her bf invited us down to Octopus Sushi in Long Beach to sample the spectacle that's taking over the entire downtown area, I reluctantly agreed, intrigued by the novelty, a bit turned off by the location. Octopus occupies the most prime real estate corner in the LBC (Pine and Broadway, formerly Wasabi, another super hot, super packed sushi bar and lounge) boasting a built-in clientele that's brimming with college students and locals alike ready to get their fish and festivity on.

I gotta admit, sometimes you feel like a fancy schmancy $500 sushi dinner...Other times you simply wanna cut and roll, sake up, and boogey on down to where the chefs know your name and the parties are ALWAYS the same. Full restaurant and bar upstairs, complete club and lounge downstairs...who's complaining ;D Thanks for hooking it up Trinhy-Poo!!! Can't wait for round 2 in the LBC, whoohoo!!!

TGIF y'all!!!
Hope you enjoy a fantabulous weekend!!!
