Hirozen, Los Angeles, CA

Hirozen Restaurant Review

: The name on the awning of this Japanese-inspired storefront is Hirozen Gourmet, not Hirozen Sushi or Hirozen Japanese. That's because, although chef Hiroji employs classic Japanese techniques, he refuses to limit his style and ingredients to those of his homeland. Instead, his cuisine is full of surprises, like the tofu mille feuille, incorporating layers of firm tofu with sliced baby tomatoes, shiitake mushrooms and a tangy ginger sauce. While the specials of the day feature such combinations, there is also a standard menu of tempura, udon and other more common Japanese delights, as well as a good sampling of sushi. Changing daily, the sushi and sashimi selection may feature such exotic fare as Icelandic trout, loup de mer and shirotake (a Japanese white mushroom), depending on the season. Find some of the chef’s best creations in omakase dinners ranging from $38 to $85 per person. Desserts are equally creative with specialties including tempura figs and a lightly sweetened pumpkin pudding served in the shell.
