  • Cafe Japengo: There you can find the "Toro" sushi

    Cafe Japengo is a japanese restaurant with a modern atmosphere and very expensive. Located at UTC Hyatt hotel, they serve good sushi and one of the only places in SD I found the "Toro" sushi (with fat tuna). Delicious! Although the ambient is modern, they serve traditional japanese dishes like "Misoshiro" and "Yakizana". If you go for dinner don't forget to make a reservation.

    Favorite Dish: Toro sushi. They "melt'' in your mouth.

    Dark, but awesome decor, not to mention that particular waiter I dare not name... =o).

    Lunch and Dinner from $15-$25.

    Favorite Dish: You MUST order the Tootsie Roll, it's not on the menu and it's around $14 by itself, but it's the best suchi roll I have ever tasted!

    Cafe Japengo, some of the best...

    Cafe Japengo, some of the best sushi you can find here. They also serve excellent dinners as well. So there is something for those not fond of sushi.
    The price is on the high end, with a meal costing about $30 total. The atmosphere is of a very urban chique, and very classy.

    Favorite Dish: The tootsie roll. A house specialty that has eel, ***ake mushrooms, a sweet sauce and many more ingredients. *Not on the menu, but a definite must!*
