Bizen: Neighborhood's Best Sushi

To this date, this is my favourite sushi place in Sherman Oaks. Consistent readers of this site probably have figured by now that I'm a vegetarian, but my roommate, who definitely eats meat and spent a year in Japan, considers this his favourite too. He even has a good friend who drives up from Silver Lake to eat here.

Bizen is a narrow sushi and Japanese cuisine restaurant that is easy to pass by on Ventura Blvd. (it's between Sunnyslope and Greenbush). For vegetarians, there is no inari, but they serve oshinko rolls, sweet zucchini, and one fresh and colourful vegetable roll (filled with the zucchini, tomato, finely chopped carrots, mushroom, eggplant). Drop down, the best veggie roll I've ever had. Additionally, the best vegetable tempura roll as well.

For fish eaters, make sure to ask the chef what's good and fresh today. Oh, this sushi place consistently has an A rating (well, except that one time, but that shot right back up soon after).
