Osen Izakaya Restaurant Review

: At Osen Izakaya in Silver Lake, chef/owner Damon Min Cho (Matsuhisa, Maia) offers a full sushi and sashimi menu, kushiyaki, signature rolls, raw oysters and several omakase choices. Starters range from agedashi tofu and yam shrimp croquettes to truffle tuna pizza; signature plates feature miso crab salmon, seared Hokkaido scallop, and scrambled eggs with uni on baguette, while big plates include a Japanese rib-eye. Expect an extensive saké list, many Japanese beers and Japanese liquors.
