tomo sushi in burbank is one of my absolute favorite places to eat in los angeles!
i discovered it when i first moved out here two years ago. my omni boyfriend is a sushi fiend and wanted to have dinner at kabuki in downtown burbank. unfortunately, the wait was really long and we were really hungry, so we decided to just wander around the neighborhood and look for something else.
we stumbled into tomo sushi, a tiny sushi bar with dollar bills taped all over the walls, not expecting much, but it was AMAZING! they have a big vegan sushi menu that goes way beyond just the avocado and cucumber roll I was expecting to get.
i usually still get the same things (veggie roll in soy paper and fried tofu roll), but once in awhile i try something new. on my last visit, i discovered that if you asked, they would make you vegan miso soup! i haven’t had miso soup in a restaurant in a long time, so i found this especially exciting- it was so yummy!
also, the chef usually brings you a free taste of something. my favorite is tempura-fried shishito peppers, but i always nom those before i get a pic. pictured above is a little cucumber and seaweed salad.
we always try to sit at the table near this “i love amy forever” dollar! we didn’t put it up there (we have our own), but it always makes us smile, almost as much as the delicious meals we have here!
