“We are so excited to bring Nozawa’s food to this community of foodies,” said co-founder Lele Massimini.
Koreatown is known for having some of the best food options in Los Angeles, making it no surprise that since opening in 2014, people have been requesting that the delicious restaurant open up in this neighborhood.
If you don’t already know, KazuNori is known for its four specialty hand roll menus, ice-cold beer, fresh sashimi and flavorful sake. When you visit the new location, make sure to try the Ankimo Hand Roll that is exclusive to Koreatown! The newest roll is made with Monkfish liver and homemade miso sauce, all intricately wrapped up in the signature hand-rolled style. The Monkfish liver might sound a little adventurous for some people, but it perfectly melts on your tongue and is a delicious mouthwatering dish that you have to try.
When you walk inside, you will be greeted by an elegant design that complements the space nicely. The restaurant kept a similar style to the other spots with the signature blackened steel and exposed wood walls and vaulted ceilings. This location also features the beloved sushi counter that allows guests to see the masterful hand rolls being made. By giving guests the option to sit at the bar, their dining experience becomes immersive and shows them these hand rolls are truly a work of art that the chefs have mastered.
KazuNori deservedly gets its name from the famous sushi chef Kazunori Nozawa who introduced hand rolls to the United States more than 40 years ago. To honor this talented man, the team at the restaurant always makes sure to use the best quality fish paired perfectly with house-made sauces, warm rice and fresh seaweed harvested especially for their dishes. Despite the cylindrical-style hand rolls sounding simple, they are anything but that. KazuNori prides themselves on their creative rolls and unique options for fish.
KazuNori: The Original Hand Roll Bar is located at The Chapman Plaza, 3465 W 6th St. #50 90020.
