Korean-run Japanese restaurant on Vermont Avenue serving hwe (raw fish). Omakase ($120 per person) entrusts the selection to the chef. Open only during lunch and dinner hours. Closed on Sundays. “Koreatown’s oldest sushi bar.” Did have a change of ownership in 2009 — that’s why it’s NEW Shogun.
In 2010, the Los Angeles City Council formally declared Koreatown's borders as Western Avenue, Olympic Boulevard, Vermont Avenue, and 3rd Street, with a business corridor on Western from 3rd to Rosewood Avenue.
