Little Izaka-ya by Katsu-ya, Sherman Oaks

One of my favorite new places for a work day lunch is Little Izaka-ya by Katsu-ya in Sherman Oaks. They have a great selection of lunch specials from bento boxes to chirashi bowl and for a reasonable price. The service is fast so they get customers in and out and back to work. Included with all their lunch specials is a bowl of miso soup and mixed salad with a house ginger dressing.

Chirashi bowl
The thing I love about this chirashi bowl is the choice of salmon eggs or uni at no extra charge. Any chirashi bowl with uni gets a two thumbs up from me. The bowl has a generous assortment of items from gyoza to crab meat to tuna and salmon. All the seafood tasted fresh with uni, crab and salmon being my favorite items in the bowl. 

Little Izaka-ya plate
If you feel like splurging a little, the most expensive lunch special is this plate. Starting with the small plate at the top of the picture, you get yellowtail with jalapeƱo, halibut w/granny apple carpaccio, albacore with crispy onion, and the large plate has tuna over crispy rice and baked crab roll. 

Both are a good choice for lunch but I prefer the chirashi over the plate because of the uni factor. I'm glad to have this little spot to add to my lunch options in Sherman Oaks. 

Where do you go for lunch in the area?
