Katsuya has been a long-standing favorite of the Celeb crowd, always drawing paparazzi whether its outside their Brentwood or Hollywood location. Part of the SBE franchise, Katsuya has made it over the two-year hump for usual Hollywood restaurant turnover and has been around for the last 5 years… there are many reasons why.
Katsuya is officially going to kick off my own “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” series. Although this restaurant boosts tonnes of great dishes, we are going to talk about the show stopper…….”Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice.”Anyone that has been to Katsyua knows that this dish is a signature one, it’s a staple, a “you have to order”. Spicy raw tuna (but not too spicy) set a top of a deep-fried, crunchy, jasmine rice square, it practically melts in your mouth. Pair it with their signature Watermelon Mojito and you will be back… it’s a promise. If you are looking for ambience, great food, inventive cocktails, and a good crowd, make your next meal here.
