If you are ready for a change, be sure to try the "Wrench and Rodent Seabasstropub"...a small restaurant adjacent to the Whet Noodle and share a common kitchen.

OK, enough of the background information...the food was "out-of-bounds" to paraphrase a well known TV personality. From the scrumptious sashimi, to numerous types of seafood nigiri to the unusually creative 'rolls' filled and/or covered with combinations of seafood...remarkable and delicious.

The anchovy nigiri was without peer (and local), the baked scallops had a tasteful sweet and sour dressing that enhanced the flavor making them among my favorite and the "Chronic" and "Del Mar" rolls were pounced on by everyone.

Take a walk on the wild side and try the Wrench and Rodent Seabasstropub...

Ate here because it was open a little later. There was a sushi side and a noodle side. Had sushi. Many different inventive menu items with everything fresh and well prepared. Had crispy cauliflower, hot and sour miso soup, several different rolls that featured so many different preparations that I'd never seen before. Our favorite was the hedgehog roll, which was a shrimp tempura/ California roll topped with garlic, yellow trail and truffle oil. Unreal! They serve drinks and it's a cozy comfortable, vibey place. So worth the visit.

I don't live in the area so I don't feel too bad about giving away this gem. The chef's are artistes here. Seriously if you can go, go.

This is the premier sushi, fish source in North San Diego County, if not all of San Diego. This is THE place, growing by word of mouth. These folks have the freshest seafood, prepared in the most creative ways imaginable. Don't be put off by the location or the "ambience". It's funky and intimate, and truly a novel experience. We've eaten often since they opened some years ago, and every visit has been different and rewarding. Be sure to ask what the chefs are making today.

A lovely intimate cafe for an evening of sharing Sushi and Sashimi. They have indoor/outdoor seating. The sushi rolls were generous, larger rolls than I typically see and the Sashimi was thickly sliced and yummy. The wait staff was attentive and did a great job at recommending something spicy. The Kombucha was fantastic and the dessert cupcake which we took home and shared later was phenomenal. Great date place! Thank you!
