Bui Sushi in Malibu

Bui Sushi - 23733 Malibu Road, Malibu, CA 90265, 310-456-1500
I snuck away to LA for a few days to refresh and see old friends over good vibes, fabulous food, clubs, art, ink, music, beach, house touring, light shopping and DINING... 
We caught up over hot sake and beer at Bui Sushi in Malibu, a chic beachy atmosphere. Mimi did the ordering (she's excellent at ordering!). Each plate was vibrant, beautiful and DELICIOUS. Pictures are worth a million words (and I am limited in sushi knowledge), so here...
Spiced up edamame with super kick.
Simple, subtle, spicy, citrus, silky smooth Hamachi.
This roll has extreme citrus, salty AND spicy. Creamy crabmeat is superb in a sick rich way. So good. (Creamy crab is not my fave, but they do it PERFECT here.)
Here is a giant ball of tuna on top of a fried patty of rice. Topped off with tobiko and special mayo. Oops, they forgot to season the tuna (judging from the light colored tuna). They apologized and immediately made another.
This white roll was unique - monochromatic white with white-black sesame soypaper (versus seaweed). Again, filled with rich crabmeat, but this time it was lightly battered and fried for a crisp crunch texture. Awesome, tasty. Dreamy creamy crab (hmm, say that again?!).
Second try with the tuna on fried rice patty. Spicier, redder, so INTENSE! The center of the fried rice patty contained a small piece of marinated eggplant (hidden beneath the mound of spicy tuna). Amazing flavors!
Seared blackened tuna. Inside is shrimp, avocado, cucumber. Spicy light pozu-y, yet subtle. Garnishes were crisp and fresh, chili, red onion, tomato. SO GOOD.
Fresh uni sea urchin. Can't go wrong here. Either you like it or you don't.
This roll had wagu sliced on top, then torched. Inside is asparagus, shrimp, avocado. It was very good, but not my favorite (too creamy!). Very good though.
Happy girls gaga over yummy food...
Back to the beachhouse. As expected, I am in LOVE with Carbon Beach.

  1. Your pictures makes me so hungary. I want to have more Albocore roll. They were the best. BTW i love the title of your blog, "Dang It Delicious" and that should be the title of your cookbook.

  2. Fabulous! Makes me hungry at 10 in the morning!
