Oishii Bento temporarily closed due to fire.

Oishii Bento, a small restaurant serving Japanese and Korean fast food in Oakland, will be temporarily closed due to a fire Wednesday night.

Oakland Ave., Friday afternoon.

Oishii Bento was voted best Japanese restaurant in Oakland by readers of The Pitt News in 2011, and was the editors' pick for best sushi place in the neighborhood. It might get some competition, as Sushi Fuku is set to open across the street in the old Quizno's location. That will be the fifth Asian restaurant on the Oakland Ave. block between Fifth and Forbes Aves.
