Sadly, no oden at the 7-Eleven in Los Angeles. But go to Morinoya, newly opened in the Little Osaka neighborhood along Sawtelle, and you'll find bowls of oden far, far better than those you'd get in any convenience store, even one in Harajuku.
Run by chef Takayuki Morishita (Mitsuki, Yuu, Place Yuu), Morinoya opened in mid-April, serving yakitori, hot pots, noodles, sushi and sashimi -- and oden. The oden, which is served only at dinner, is composed of a lovely light broth and any number, depending on how many items you order, of the usual things one finds in oden: daikon, fish cakes, eggs, suji niku (charmingly billed as "fibrous meat"), tofu and konjac, a traditional vegetable that's kind of like a cross between a plant and an eraser.
Morinoya is located in the second floor of the same massive complex on the corner of Sawtelle and Olympic that houses the utterly wonderful sushi restaurant Kiriko. Have fun parking. They began serving lunch yesterday. (Remember, no oden for lunch. Come back for dinner.)
