On a rare date night excursion, my wife and I decided to find a new sushi spot. After a little searching, my wife turned up Kappa sushi which had an amazing 4.5 Yelp rating with 136 reviews. It’s on Mira Mesa in the Trader Joes/Chuck E. Cheese shopping center, a spot we know all too well from kids birthday parties. It’s a small restaurant, somewhat tightly packed but clean and modern looking.

The menu is large with lots of interesting choices. We went early so we had happy hour options too. I’m a fan of oysters, so we both started with oyster shooters which were well seasoned, a little sweet and spicy too. We split the Surf & Turf roll which is lobster, asparagus and avocado topped with Kobe beef and garlic chips. I’ve had Kobe beef rolls before, but this was by far the best. My only complaint is that I think the garlic should have been sliced even thinner, since that’s such a strong flavor.
Just for myself I got the ‘El Diablo’ roll, spicy crab and cucumber topped with pepper seared ahi and a spicy garlic ponzu. This was very spicy, a little sweet and delicious. The spice came from different spots in the dish and it came together really well. My wife got a couple hand rolls and a cucumber salad (that I ended up eating most of).

I would definitely recommend this place and can’t wait to go back to explore more of their menu.
