What's Fresh...............Food

Yes, sushi is about food - but it's also about people. At Akasaka Sushi, super-fresh fish is combined with a friendly, knowledgeable staff who happily make recommendations to novices and eagerly accommodate the special requests of sushi aficionados. Akasaka's reputation for great service, excellent food and even better prices (try the lunch combo specials that start at only $6.99 or the wildly-popular All You Can Eat service) have found a new home in Castaic. The family-run business provides a welcome, and delicious, alternative to the over-priced and hyped "designer" sushi restaurant; you'll feel right at home at Akasaka.
Akasaka Sushi is located at 28050 Hasley Canyon Road in the Hasley Canyon Shopping Center 257-6661.

"El Rinconcito" means "the little corner" in Spanish, but there's nothing small about the authentic flavors you'll discover here. The family's rich Mexican heritage ("El Rinconcito" is also the name of the family ranch in Jalisco) translates into a simultaneously accessible - and adventurous - menu. You'll find delicious standards like the Chipotle Chicken Burrito and generational family favorites like Steak Ranchero (thinly-cut roast beef steak with tomatoes and onions). The sizzling selections are mouth-wateringly affordable - and filling - too. Complete breakfasts start at $4.50 and nearly every dish is paired with beans, rice and handmade tortillas.

The hands-down best New York Pastrami and Corned Beef - along with over 70 gourmet-quality sandwiches and 30 salads (including the crave-worthy Sour Cream, Potato & Bacon Salad), plus Nathan's Coney Island grilled dogs and specials (arrive early on Saturday for Cheeseburgers so good, they sell out in 90 minutes) - entice folks from Granada Hills and beyond to this SCV haven. Steve and his family are just as big on customer service as they are on flavor, too. Savor the made-to-order sandwiches, fresh-baked breads, authentic Italian gelato, homemade soups and handcrafted desserts (Cheesecake!) on site or ask about catering.

Mediterranean Skewers combines both the exotic (Babaghanouj, a delicious concoction made of barbecued eggplant) and the familiar (seriously good hummus) in a menu that's both 100-percent fresh and authentic. Go for the Chicken Family Meal; for only $15.99, your crew will dine on a whole, succulent rotisserie chicken, two appetizers, rice, pitas and garlic spread. Moist and flavorful kabobs - featuring marinated chicken, tenderloin, lamb and ground beef - round out the extensive menu. Save room for dessert; truffles and baklava, combined with a cup of Turkish coffee, provide the perfect ending to an already exceptional meal.
