So, there’s a little hidden gem located in North County San Diego that only the locals know about. We would feel guilty if we didn’t tell you about it and share this San Diego gem with you. The place is called Zenbu Sushi located in Cardiff-by-the-Sea. It’s in a beautiful location just down the street from the beach. We were in the mood for some sushi, sake bombs and fun! This small restaurant has a cool, relaxed environment with an upscale menu and hosts some of the most talented sushi chefs we’ve experienced!
Zenbu prides itself on using only the finest high quality fresh ingredients. Their specialty sushi rolls are out of this world! The food is so beautifully prepared and colorful and the sake bombs are top quality. If you like California rolls, you HAVE to try the Mexicali roll. It takes it up ten levels by adding cilantro, chili pepper and jalapeno to traditional California roll ingredients. The lava roll, zero hero and salmon sashimi are also especially good. You can’t go wrong with anything on this menu and we couldn’t recommend it enough. We’ll be making special trips to San Diego just for their life-changing Mexicali rolls!
