150 S. Barrington Avenue
Los Angeles, California

My friend, a local of LA, brought me to Saketini, which is owned and (sometimes) personally waited on by the actor, Sang Kang. This was definitely a very nice place to wind down my trip to LA.

We split the Spicy Scallop Bomb appetizer, which was quite nice. The scallops were well done, tenderly cooked and tastefully flavored.

I had the Jumbo Lava Cod, black cod prepared over a lava rock and it was delicious. The cod had a wonderful sweet, crunchy outside, while the inside was beautifully tender. This is the way a fish is supposed to taste. The accompanying vegetables and wasabi, potatos were decent, nothing really to write home about, but were good enough not to distract from the cod.

I should mention the presentation of the dishes was also quite well done. If you poke around the website, you'll be able to see pictures of the dishes. The inside is a little small, but it's cozy and kind of nice to hear the kitchen sounds in the background.

Would definitely recommend and would love to visit again soon.
