Since 1989, Cafe Japengo has been blazing new trails of culinary excellence. Over the years, this premier La Jolla sushi bar has garnered a sleeve of prestigious accolades -- and still continues to invent flavorful, visionary creations ranging from Sashimi to Char Su Duck breast. Voted one of the best San Diego sushi delis, we boast sumptuous "fusion" cuisine, prepared by world-class chefs and incorporating a rich diversity of international influences. Begin with our Hot and Sour Tomatillo Soup, Curry-Dusted Calamari, or Spicy Tako Sashimi. Then feast on our Organic Salmon or Miso-Glazed Butterfish. Looking to experience the best sushi in San Diego, California? Sample our famous Tootsie Roll - a soft-shelled crab topped with shiitake mushrooms, avocado, and a sake marinade. And if you seek an amazing lunch experience, savor lunch Kobe Burger with Shishito peppers.
