Kinkan

Los Angeles, CA 90039

Pictures of baby pit bulls, color-coded day planners, Harvey Kinkle from Sabrina the Teenage Witch… I like pretty things. So naturally, I gravitated towards Kinkan. From dazzling boxes of uni to chirashi bowls so immaculate, they look like Sugarfish on Adderall, this Silver Lake pop-up is eternally in pursuit of perfection. Every dish here seems more beautiful than the last - sleek slices of unagi are cushioned by tamago and ikura, and sashimi boxes come studded with bluefin tuna, sea bream, and Hokkaido scallops - and, as an added bonus, each tastes incredible, too, proof that Kinkan is more than just a pretty face. - KH

From neatly packed sashimi bentos to dazzling boxes of uni, this Silver Lake sushi pop-up is utterly obsessed with perfection - but in the best way possible, kind of like Sugarfish on Adderall. Elaborate chirashi dons are served in ceramic bowls (which can be purchased for $5) and are filled with expertly cut pieces of bluefin tuna, unagi, sea bream, and ikura. Plus they give you a little can of yuzu soda with every meal, which is just... nice? DM their Instagram to pre-order.

One of our favorite pop-ups of the year, Kinkan operates out of a house in Silver Lake, and turns out beautiful chirashi bowls and sashimi boxes. But don’t worry, it’s not just about looks here - the fish tastes incredible as well. Pick-up only, available Wednesday-Sunday. DM to order.

I’m a relatively simple person - I see a stunning photo of uni and soba on Instagram, then immediately order it. Well, there’s also usually a step somewhere in between where I check my bank account (I’m not what you would call “fiscally responsible”), but that part’s not as fun to say. Anyway. Once I had confirmed my funds, I promptly DM’d Kinkan on Instagram and within the hour, was on my way to pick up their daily special. Plump pieces of uni arrived on a bed of chilled buckwheat noodles adorned with ikura (salmon roe) and a side of light, soy-based dipping sauce. In true Kinkan fashion, the entire meal was dazzling, elegant, and executed with an attention to detail that is second to none - in other words, kind of like Japanese food on Adderall.
