If your appetite’s bigger than your budget, Mr. Sushi in the strip mall on the corner of Valencia Boulevard and Cinema Drive, has a great meal deal. For $8.95 at lunch or $9.95 for dinner, order the Ramen Combination.
In addition to getting a vat of ramen (a noodle soup dish)—with which you can add various toppings like seaweed, corn, additional pork, etc., as well as alter the spice to fit your palate—the combo allows patrons to chose a “side dish.” But this side dish, we’ve found, can be a meal in itself. Choose from: the California roll, spicy tuna roll, assorted sushi (five pieces) or sashimi (six pieces).
We’ve ordered the spicy tuna roll twice, and each time, the cut roll was a pretty generous, stuffed six-piece roll. By the time we finished the tuna and started on the ramen, we were nearly full and could only get through half of the soup dish. (Unfortunately, you can’t really take leftover ramen home because the noodles get too mushy.)
If you’re starving, the Ramen Combo is a way to go. One caveat: Mr. Sushi’s ramen, like many others, is packed with sodium so just beware if you’re watching the salt for dietary purposes.
