“Downtown La Jolla, also known as La Jolla Village, is the Beverly Hills of San Diego. Prospect Street is the main drag, with upscale jewelry and boutique shops, art galleries, fine dining, cafes, exquisite hotels, and clubs. Downtown combines a down to earth coastal feel with a cosmopolitan, southern European charm, unlike anywhere else along the coast.”

“Hands down this place is the best Japanese Yakitori, Ramen, Sashimi, Oyster... every Japanese dish that I've tried. The food and service are to perfection every time. Its authentic and the ambience puts you into the mood for good Japanese food! It's about a 20 minutes ride to this place in the city of Tustin, but well worth the trip. There WILL be a wait and sorry no reservation here.”
