Awesome Sushi is a small place with big flavor.  It is tucked away next to an Auto Shop on the corner of Spring & Clark Ave in Long Beach, CA.

The sushi chefs at Awesome Sushi are very creative and really enjoy their work.  The staff knows the customers by names and have awesome customer service (hence the name).
This is a sushi fusion restaurant so if you are a Japanese sushi purist you will not like this place.  Chef  Pat has strong influences from Italian, French, Chinese, Thai, Japanese, and even Mexican in his sushi rolls and sauces.
This was my first roll and was called “The Awesome Roll”.  It is smothered in a garlic buttery ponzo sauce of goodness.  The sauce and the heat provided by the jalapeno on top really made this roll stand out from other sushi places in Long Beach.
The next roll I got was a low carb roll called “Velvet Voice”.  Which is tuna and shrimp, tempura flake, spicy mayo and chili sauce, wrapped in soy paper.  I find that Chef Pat’s fusion sushi really steps it up on the flavor of his sauces.  Some people say they are masking the flavor of the fish but I believe it is just a different take on sushi and I enjoy the added flavor.  If I want to taste just the fish I order sashimi not a roll DUH!
This is Chef Pat’s take on a spider roll.  He definitely gets a 10 for presentation and the roll itself was pretty damn good too.
The one thing that really sets Awesome Sushi apart from the other sushi places in Long Beach is the sake!  Chef Pat loves sake ALMOST as much as I do and has an extensive sake list with over 20 different kinds of sake.  In my opinion cold sake is ten times better than hot sake.  Awesome Sushi offers a sake sampler of 3 or 6 different shots of sake.  Treat yourself to a whole new experience and try some great cold sake.
Overall Awesome Sushi is a great place for sushi in Long Beach.  Their customer service is truly awesome and the Fusion Sushi kicks ass.  Awesome Sushi has great lunch specials and one of the best sushi happy hours in town.  Don’t just take my word for it, check out their Yelp Reviews
