Osawa review image

Osawa

One of the busiest restaurants in Pasadena, Osawa does it all - shabu shabu, sushi, and sukiyaki - and all of it is pretty great. Despite the huge menu, we usually order the sushi combination special, which includes a blue crab hand roll alongside 16 pieces of extremely high-quality fish. If you’re not going all-in on the sushi, try to get a seat at the shabu shabu counter, because then you can order off both the shabu menu and the a la carte sushi one.
