Tucked away in a desolate mini-mall next to some Metrolink tracks in an empty part of town, with a sign advertising "hardcore sushi," Maki-Zushi boasts a huge menu, ranging from cooked food to American-style rolls (too mayonnaise-y). The secret to a great meal here is to go for the gems written up on the specials board: A recent visit yielded three different kinds of toro, kinmidai flown in from Japan, Kumamoto oysters and the best uni in Orange County. While you can get an omakase set with some of the blackboard hits on it for $49, sit at the bar and talk to the itamae instead; you'll eat better.
