Sushi Man

Finally!  I'm done reposting all my old reviews from the original Oh-So Yummy site.  So here's a new one...

While I was at Michael's (the craft store), I noticed a sign for Sushi Man, so I decided to try them out.  They're in the same shopping area as Pacific Theaters and they also have locations in Hawaii and two more in San Diego: 6348 College Grove Way #104 (next to Sam's Club) and 872 Eastlake Parkway #412 (at the Village Walk).

Chicken Karaage and Miso Soup

Order any of the Maki or Donburi and it comes with Miso Soup, which I think is pretty much the same anywhere you go.  I was excited to see Chicken Karaage ($3.99 for 6 pieces) on the menu since I had some deliciously crunchy chicken karaage at Genki Sushi on Kauai, but at Sushi Man, they batter the chicken and it's not as good or crunchy.

Kakke Udon

Kakke Udon ($4.99) was pretty good, but the noodles were a little chewier than I would have liked.

Dynamite Maki and Chicken Teri Maki

I didn't try the Dynamite Maki ($8.49), but Dave liked it.  I think it was a tempura shrimp roll topped with spicy tuna and sauces.  I loved the Chicken Teri Maki ($5.99), but keep in mind I'm not an adventurous sushi eater...  only the cooked stuff for me!  This might be a good one for kids to try!  It's teriyaki chicken with cucumber and I think a little mayo or some kind of white creamy sauce.  They also offer this in a "hand roll" version for $2.49.  It's really more like an uncut roll and not the cone that other restaurants refer to as hand roll.

I like this place.  It's nice, clean, and they're inexpensive.  I think they mostly cater to a business lunch crowd or to-goers, but there is some seating available inside and out in the food court area.  You can also order a party plate with 30-54 pieces for $17-$40.  Sure you can get sushi at Costco for your party, but it's probably not as fresh as here!  They also serve nigiri and bento boxes.  There were several things that I wanted to order, but I had to limit myself.  I'll definitely be coming back =)

Wow, this place looks great, I may try it out. I can't believe I missed it.
