Kabuki Sushi

As I have mentioned on this blog before, I had the great fortune of spending my honeymoon in Tokyo and Kyoto, Japan, last summer. Sushi was something that was an everyday part of life, and it was often an inexpensive option for a simple lunch or dinner, provided we visited that most ubiquitous of Japanese eateries, the rotary/conveyor belt sushi bar!

Conveyor belt sushi is the cheapest option for lunch in Tokyo, save for the inexpensive noodle shops. The fish is incredibly fresh, and at $6 for two pieces of fatty tuna, it's hard to say no. 

Since we returned to the States, we have longed to have that experience again of rotary sushi. We have thoroughly enjoyed the West Coast sushi offerings, but could not find rotary sushi in San Diego. On a recommendation, we visited Kabuki, thinking that we would just get some good sushi. Imagine our delight to see the conveyor belt going, and patrons happily eating up $3 plates of various fresh fish. 

Besides the novelty of the set up, Kabuki's sushi is quite good. The fish was fresh and tasty, and the service was perfect. If the fish selection that you desire is not currently on the conveyor belt, simply ask the chef to prepare it. The chefs were nice enough to make sure that we had everything that we wanted.

Highly recommended.

USA Today Reports French Food Fights Back!
Food and Entertainment Folded into One

Dear Gwen,

France has given us a lot over the years; the Statue of Liberty, mimes, and Brigitte Bardot. It’s definitely time to stick a fork in the backlash against all things French that went down a few years back. You can also stick a fork in a crepe from California Crepes, or you can eat it right out of the cone. It is the many options that makes California Crepes recent announcement to launch catering so fun for San Diego. Now locals can choose sweet or savory and enjoy watching while a California Crepe artist crafts the perfect custom-made crepe.

Located in San Diego’s historic Gaslamp Quarter’s Horton Plaza, California Crepes serves authentic French crepes with a twist of California style. Whether savory or sweet and made using only the freshest ingredients, these crepes continue to delight San Diegans and now they are available for all types of events from business meetings, customer appreciation events, private parties, bridal and baby showers, and even simple entertaining needs.

California Crepes opened its doors in February 2010 when Lorrae Hosseini, owner and chef, decided to give the traditional French faire her own unique twist by adding the flavors and ingredients of fresh California cuisine to her recipes. It has quickly become the place for crepes at Horton Plaza and in Downtown San Diego.

I would love to discuss creative story ideas with you. Please let me know if you are interested.
