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

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

      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>)

          Hey, Ipse - here is a prior thread http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/734261 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...

          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.
