Oakland: Uzen Japanese Cuisine; restaurant review + things to do

880 South

Uzen Japanese Cuisine  5415 College Ave./Hudson St., (510) 654-7753.  L M-F, D M-Sat; $$.  Takes reservations. 

Narrow and deep, this small spot manages to squeeze in a full-size sushi bar.  Sushi (vegan sushi, too) and sashimi are the strong points, but udon noodles, salmon free-range Rocky chicken teriyaki, tempura, and katsu don (fried pork cutlet) all share the menu.

Nearby, Bella Vita (5307 College Ave., (510) 653-1639) stocks a browse-worthy collection of locally handmade goods plus children’s items and some new and vintage clothing. 

Rockridge Home (5418 College Ave., (510) 420-1928.  Daily 11-8.) gift and kitchen shop is across the street with a spectacular and colorful selection of goods.  You’ll find items for children, for organizing your home, and for thrilling a giftee.
