After a 2-month menu, larger bar, and interior design renovation, Sushi Roku in West Hollywood finally re-opened last October. Why it took Your Next Bite so long to review the redo, words cannot say. But I can tell you the must-orders at Roku – whether you choose to sit out on the open-air garden patio, private dining room, or sushi bar. And, that it's still the same typical LA $ee-and-be-$cene with some sky-high prices not worth it compared to the competition.
- worth every YENny, must-order, thinly sliced, light yet rich with a touch of acid Salmon Sashimi Carpaccio with Black Truffles Shaved Tableside $26
- a lot harder, thicker, crunchier & more expensive than my favorite Izakaya Katsuya's version, "Hanabi" Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice with Diced Green Onions (these were an extra-specially appreciated nice touch, though) $13
- oozy sweet caramel mush, yet so delectable Miso Eggplant Dengaku $9
- light 'n limey, a little bland with a grainy hard crunch Albacore Tacos "Roku Style" with Cilantro, Guac, and Diced Tomato $14
- a roku classic, creamy aioli, and hard to wrap your mouth around Signature Baked Lobster Roll with Creamy Miso Sauce $19
- pretty standard, spicy 'n sticky Spicy Tuna Cut Roll $9
Your Take-Away: Definitely don't miss out on the Salmon Sashimi Carpaccio, Miso Eggplant, and Signature Baked Lobster Roll. Finally, the Champagne Elderflower Cocktail is pretty undeniable too, no matter what round you're on.
