Yuzando on Sawtelle

So as I've mentioned previously on these boards, when my hellish job gets the best of me I escape...and treat myself to great sushi at a sushi bar for lunch. I find it very relaxing. This week I wanted to break out of the Kiriko-Echigo-Hide route and try something I tried Yuzando, just up the street where Tenn used to be. And I think I'll definitely be going back...

Not only did I find it better than Tenn (toro not included...of course I didn't have it at Yuzando) but lunch was a fantastic deal- for quality and quantity, definitely better than Echigo's famed lunch special. For $15.50 I got the "sushi lunch deluxe," which included: small soup and salad, 2 tuna, 2 salmon, 1 whitefish/ halibut, 1 albacore, 1 yellowtail, 1 ikura, 1 eel (I requested anago/ sea eel), 1 hamachi (usually served with shrimp, which I don't care for in sushi), as well as a spicy salmon roll (again, substituted for spicy tuna- I always test the salmon rolls). Everything, especially the basics, was terrific- medium cut, good consistency, strong taste. Total including an iced tea and tip? $20 EVEN. My idea of a perfect lunch...and then I had to come back to work.
