Photos: Hana Matsuri, the subject of this week's review

Always on a voyage for good sushi in this landlocked state, this week's review took me to Hana Matsuri, a Westminster restaurant where the sushi counter is helmed by Eddie Wang, who knows his way around a fresh fish. I enjoyed much of what he cut and arranged, even if not every piece of fish was precisely sliced.

Here, to go with the review, is a side of photos.

Her toughest assignment had her drinking ten martinis and eating ten Caesar salads over the course of 48 hours. She still drinks martinis, but remains lukewarm on Caesar salads.
