Cafe Japengo Named Best Sushi Bar in San Diego

 Cafe Japengo has consistently been voted the number one sushi restaurant in San Diego year after year.


Cafe Japengo, a local favorite, recently celebrated its 25th Anniversary as it continues to wow diners with its eclectic mix of awe-inspiring “fusion” cuisine and sushi bar. 


Cafe Japengo is home to two world-class chefs who treat guests to a culinary adventure that blends exotic flavors from around the world. Executive Sushi Chef Jerry Warner, who was part of the opening staff of the restaurant in 1990, honed his skills as an apprentice to Japengo’s first sushi Master, Sushi Chef Osamu “Fuji” Fujita. Warner’s specialties include Stuffed Tempura Tuna Sashimi and Yellowtail Ceviche.  Japengo’s newest star, Executive Chef Jay Payne, was born and raised in San Diego and oversees all hot food preparation at the restaurant. 

Cafe Japengo is located adjacent to the Hyatt Regency La Jolla in the hotel’s popular Restaurant Court at Aventine.
