Sakae Sushi

On a friend’s birthday trip, we all decided to visit Newport Beach and found this sushi restaurant on the way. At first, we were hesitant to enter just because the atmosphere felt almost too bougie and we were just a couple of kids. Nevertheless, we entered and were greeted by the sweetest hostess. She immediately tried to accommodate to our large number and had us seated right away. I guess the highlight of the night was honestly the beautiful interior of the restaurant. The walls were mirrored and everywhere were signs of Japanese culture. I particularly noticed that the workers were dressed in garments that I later discovered were were a combination of happis with the designs of a kimono. Overall, the combination of the two types of clothing made quite a beautiful combination that I would truly love to come back for the food and also see.
