I’d previously met friends at Iroha Sushi of Tokyo a few times. It’s easy to get to in Studio City, with great street parking and quality fish.
On this particular evening, we started with CRISPY RICE CAKE (spicy tuna mix on top of fried rice). It was – okay. I honestly think the best crispy rice in Studio City is at Malama Pono. So, this was a bit average. I also didn’t like that the tobiko was pre rolled into the spicy tuna mix.
Next came the KING ROLL (In: shredded yellowtail, asparagus, avocado, cucumber, gobo and seaweed. Out: baked mayo, jalapeños teriyaki sauce and rice); the ALFRED ROLL (spicy tuna, mango, chopped red onion, cilantro, mayo and jalapeños wrapped in seaweed.); and the LEMON ROLL (spicy tuna roll inside wrapped in soy paper with slices of salmon and lemon on top).
Again, it was fine for wanting rolls. But, it wasn’t outstanding.
We ended with the FOREST FIRE (Albacore, ginger and cucumber roll with spicy tuna on top)
Usually, time at Iroha Sushi of Tokyo is memorable and outstanding. It fit what we wanted – which was a place that was open late for sushi rolls. So, I simply consider this particular visit a minor blip.
