Joie De Vivre Tuesday #8: Oki Doki
Posted by Shannon on 03/08/2011
Oki Doki Sushi quietly exists in awesomeness in south Hermosa Beach. The restaurant is alcoved in a small area just off of the east side of Pacific Coast Highway (PCH.)
Yelp seldom lets me down. True to form… it properly lists Oki Doki w/ a solid four star ratings after 150 reviews.
The spot seats a max of 20 people, with about 10 more seats at the sushi bar. Each patron receives a piece of whitefish tempura, drizzled in a duo of sauces, and a cup of edamame. We sat at the sushi bar and ordered Kirin and Sapporos.
What I dig about Oki Doki’s version is that the sriracha ratio is not to a scale that scorches away your ability to taste the avocado and maguro. This roll was no slouch on mass either.
My roll was good, but hard to stack itself up against that behemoth we just ate.
The heat made the baby scallops a bit tough but the added crunch of the micro-diced scallions, as well as the bright coral-colored roe, brought the roll back to the quality level of Oki Doki standard.
Many, many more rolls to try!
