Two new great Sushi Happy Hours in LA!

The Culturistas love Sushi, it happens to be one of our favorite cuisines.  Delicious AND figure friendly. And even more than Sushi- we love a good happy hour. So of course we were thrilled with these new finds.  Both found in West Hollywood, Omi Sushi and Crazy Rock'n Sushi are fab places to get delicious sushi/sake/beer for a great price.

We love this place for their fab happy hour menu.  Prices are great on the sushi and even better on the sake- A large sake is $1.75!!! Happy hour goes from 4pm to 9pm- which is great for people that have later work hours.  We recommend the "Red Rock" (crispy rice with spicy tuna and jalapeno) "Crazy Tuna Roll" And "Omi Crunch Roll"  Check out their happy hour menu here:

Omi Sushi
8163 Santa Monica Boulevard 
West Hollywood, CA 90046
(323) 654-1056

I tend to judge a sushi place on the freshness of their Spicy Tuna Roll- since it happens to be my favorite basic.  And at Crazy Rock'n Sushi is it soooo good and fresh. Even better- their happy hour lasts all day from 12pm-10pm.  Try specialty rolls such as: The Sweet Love Roll, and Spicy Tuna Tempura- yum!

Crazy Rock'n Sushi
7100 Santa Monica Blvd
West Hollywood, CA 90046
