Come hungry.

Always leave your favorite sushi bar hungry for more? For those with an (almost) unquenchable appetite for sushi, Sushi Ippo, sitting right on the corner of Wilshire and Western in Koreatown, is the raw fish specialist of your dreams.

While the Korean-owned Japanese restaurant offers a hefty a la carte menu, you're really here for the all-you-can-eat specials that run for only $19.95 at lunch and $28.95 at dinner. The special includes dinner entrees, a wide variety of rolls, and all premium nigiri with the exception of toro and any order of uni beyond the first. And while the quality certainly isn't on par with that of the essential sushi restaurants in town, it's not a bad way to get your sushi fix.

So what's the catch? Like most AYCE spots, waste not, want not is the name of the game. Any leftover food is charged at full price, so over-zealous ordering really puts competitive eating skills to the test.

Sushi Ippo expects to receive its liquor license in the coming weeks, at which point its blaring electronic tunes and LED lights will make it quite the spot to kick off a night out in Koreatown.
