From deep-fried crab to Norteño bands to covering almost everything in cream cheese, East LA's Culichi Town is not your typical sushi restaurant.

Mexican sushi might sound like a made-up term, but we can assure you that it's a real cuisine coming out of East LA (with origins in the Sinaloa region of Mexico). We visit Culichi Town in Bell Gardens, a restaurant considered the leader and originator of Mexican sushi, to see what they are all about. From deep-fried crab and shrimp rolls to a live Norteño band to covering almost everything in cream cheese, this is definitely not your typical sushi restaurant by any means. Take note, because their head chef believes Mexican sushi will soon take over the US.
