Shiki Japanese - Studio City
- Under $15
I am the hugest fan of Shiki. Its one of the best places to get the freshest sushi in the valley at a really reasonable price. I recommend ordering the "Chunk Fish Rolls" for $11.95; sushi is served with a side of extra chunky pieces of sashimi marinaded in a regular or spicy mayo mixture. You get a lot more protein in a meal when you order this way. They offer chunky rolls in tuna, albacore, scallop and salmon. I tried the eel roll $10.95 which was the freshest eel I have probably ever tasted. They grilled the eel in a special ponzu sauce right before they rolled it and topped it with fresh slices of avocado. Their starter menu is a little thin but they make up for it with free miso and bean sprout appetizers. Shiki has a good beer and wine selection. You can usually get a table without a reservation even though its crazy busy on the weekends here. I prefer to sit at the sushi bar and watch the authentically Japanese sushi chef team hard at work in creating all sorts of yummy rolls.
