Sushi Dake – Burbank

I had a business trip to southern california and stayed in the Burbank area. This area isn’t necessarily a mecca for awesome food (unless you’re talking about In-N-Out Burger!). Before meeting up with a friend to hike in Griffith Park, I stopped at a random sushi spot for a quick bite. Except when I got there, it wasn’t opened yet. What am I, a thousand years old, getting there for the early bird special? I putzed around CVS for awhile, until they opened, then became the lone diner there. It’s a little spot in an extremely nondescript stripmall. I started with the cucumber sunomono because I love me some cucumbers, and wanted something zingy. I devoured this instantly.
I even got sushi this time! I ended up getting the udon sushi, which is udon along with 4 pieces of mystery sushi. You can’t pick what you get, so it’s pretty much sushi chef’s choice. I loved every piece. Aside from the obvious salmon and tuna, I had no idea what the other two pieces were. But one came with a dollop of sriracha and the other had a sesame/soy based sauce on top. They were all fresh and delicious. 
I pretty much always get udon when I can, and I also got it here. But this time, it was really a necessity as it was pretty damn cold in LA! I expected warmth and sun, but instead, I got cold and clouds. So the soup did a good job of filling my belly and warming me up. Since I was literally the only diner there, service was quite attentive. I enjoyed my meal and then had a lovely hike.
