SushiTuesday! at Okumura in Encino

Sushi Tuesday! We had dinner at Okumura last night again. Since Sushi Hirosuke closed this has been our “go to” local sushi restaurant. The food has been consistently good and reasonably priced. The service is good and it’s very convenient when we want a quick sushi dinner.

On the Menu: Cut rolls: spicy tuna roll x2, California roll, yellowtail & green onion roll, and a Rainbow roll (tuna, yellowtail, albacore, salmon & avocado on a California roll) with small hot sake.
