Where is a good place to go for Americanized Sushi?

    325 N Rosemead Blvd
    Pasadena, CA 91107

    Fresh sushi, and the menu includes lots of rolls and interesting options.

    1. Sushi of Naples (in Pasadena) has some elaborate rolls.

      Sushi of Naples
      735 E Green St, Pasadena, CA 91101

      1. One place immediately came to mind when I read your request, the California Roll Factory on Santa Monica Blvd. in WLA (next door to Cafe 50's - just in case you want to continue the theme of eating bad American food... ;-D>)

        California Roll Factory
        11629 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025

        Cafe 50's
        11623 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025

          Hey, Ipse - here is a prior thread that I found in which you have a suggestion (among others) for this very subject. Maybe you should follow your own advice? ;-D>

          1. re: Servorg

            I'm not just looking for rolls, but other things as well, e.g. fusion types of sashimi with sauces and whatnot, etc.

            (By the way, I don't really consider Toro to be Americanized ... ha!)

              Ah so desu ka! In that case I would head right over to Asanebo in Studio City without delay...

                Boss Sushi on La Cienega

          2. My wife just brought home some leftover sushi from Roy's. Now that is what I call Americanized! It had a hint of basil and other herbs plus traditional Japanese takuan in it. It wasn't what I expected but I would say not too shabby. I've always shied away from non-traditional Asian cuisine but I would give Roy's dishes a thumbs up. BTW, the teriyaki flank steak (or maybe filet mignon?) leftovers was the most delectable and best piece of meat I've ever had. I would just imagine what it would look and taste like at his restaurant?

            1. For rolls, yoshida in san marino is my favorite. Their "japanese" sushi is also very good.
