Speaking of sushi deals, a rumor is running through Little Tokyo that skanktified Takumi Sushi has been purchased. From what we hear, the new owners come from Japan's Kula, a conveyor belt kaiten sushi operation looking to expand in Southern California and Vegas in the years to come. The restaurant, which has 270 locations overseas and stresses an organic and MSG-free approach, is currently looking for local management staff and fits into a larger scene of established Japanese businesses coming to L.A.'s Japanese neighborhoods to sweep away the less stellar offerings.
Kula, 333 E 2nd St. Downtown.
