Oden in L.A. County?
Does anybody have any recommendations for Japanese restaurants that specialize in Oden? I know it's a typically winter fare but I am personally not aware of any Japanese restaurants that serve oden. Any thoughtful responses are greatly appreciated!
I've attached a photo of the typical simmered food items that make up oden.
Too bad 7/11s here don't carry it like they do in Japan. Maybe Famima might start carrying it during the winter?
Oden, with his eight-legged steed Sleipnir, rode across the plain of Valhalla....
Hehehe.... just joking. Oden is a tasty Japanese winter soup indeed.
The Miyako Hotel in Little Tokyo once made great Oden.... And Place Yuu on Sawtelle occasionally has it on their "Daily Specials" menu during winter months.
Yashima, in the Olympic Collection on Sawtelle, is best known for udon and soba but they do have oden on the menu--year round, as far as I know--and it's always been pretty good when I've ordered it.
