Great place to grab fresh delicious sushi and not break the bank! As an absolute sushi fanatic, I was driving everyone I met when I first moved to San Diego crazzy asking them where there was a good sushi place....finally someone had mercy on me and decided to take me to the only place they new..........Sushi Deli 1 in Hillcrest, which became my first sushi experience in SoCal and has become one of my few "go to" local spots!! They have one in downtown on Broadway too.

I love coming here, they have a great variety of sushi and Japanese cuisine.....and an awesome Sake bar!

So today I decided to surprise my friend that works near by and see if we could grab some rolls and a chat for lunch....here's what we chowed on....

We shared their scrumptious garlic edimane to start with, a definite must have every time I go there!

She ordered the Monday #1A lunch special that came with sushi, gyoza and salad

I absolutely had to have sushi, so I ordered the Yokozuna combo which came with a spicy tuna roll, 5 pieces of sushi and lovely salad.

It was all delightful, quick and easy on the wallet. 2 people can eat very satisfyingly for $25 or have a couple of rolls and a couple of drinks for the same price....just great.....but they do have a bit of a wait (for lunch and dinner), so do plan to go 25-35mins early and put your name on the list....they don't do reservations.....but well worth the wait!

  1. Yum! Looks great we will have to go there. You should try our fave spot: Sushi Diner, off Mesa College Drive in Clairemont. This place is very tiny...but we enjoy its atmosphere. They even have 'My Chopsticks' service, where you leave your personal chopsticks that are cleaned in a space on the wall!

  2. Great pics. Sushi for lunch sounds about right. Cheers!

  3. I love it....sushi for breakfast, lunch & dinner......lol!!
