Don't Miss the Spicy Tuna Tower at Marina Del Rey's Kaya Sushi, Not Far From Avalon Venice on Rose

Fresh oyster shooters and soft shell crab tempura are both appropriate ways to start your meal at Kaya Sushi, a restaurant near Avalon Venice on Rose that specializes in Japanese-style seafood. However, if you're feeling a bit more adventurous, you might want to opt for a different appetizer: the spicy tuna tower. The name is fitting, given that the dish is literally a tower of green tea rice with diced mango, Asian pear, and fiery tuna.

Whatever you order to start, make sure you don't overdo it, because the main event at Kaya Sushi is, unsurprisingly the sushi. The best way to try a little bit of everything is by ordering the sushi sampler. It boasts servings of salmon, tuna, yellowtail, and albacore topped with red onion and avocado, shiso leaves and jalapeno, and a drizzle of yuzu ponzu sauce. You can also opt for nigiri or hand rolls, or steer clear of the seafood all together and have teriyaki instead.
