wow the "end of an era" description is right on. i can't believe they have a sign now. of course i'm not surprised to read about it here first. thanks for posting the pic (sans sign) for those of us who want to remember that for old times sake!

Soo @ hungryones

Sign looks cool.

Hao

So with the sign back... we're supposed to go in and ask for rolls at the bar? :)

And it has Kat!

It seemed to effect a lot of folks Dancing.

I really don't care for it much Soo.....but hey, that's just me.

Have at it Hao! Let me know what happens. Actually, like I said things have changed over the years and I think Sakura believes folks have a better understanding (I hope) of what is served. BTW, I've seen California Rolls at Sakura in recent years.

I saw that when I went to Yokohama last week. Did a double take just to make sure I was seeing things correctly.

Speaking of karaage the latest issue of weekly LALALA has an ad stating a new karaage place is opening up in the Marukai Gardena food court. Says it's the US expansion of the shop that has #1 karaage ranking in Tabelog. Opens 12/18.

Looks like I'll have to head up to my old stomping grounds soon Junichi! Thanks for the update.

I don't remember the customer and the phone book. I do remember the sign on the door that read "WE DO NOT SERVE CALIFORNIA ROLLS". My hazy earliest memory (probably from 2001) is from that there was a sign of some kind somewhere because friends and I scouting around for Japanese food. We stopped there, but Sakura was not open yet that day. I saw the no CA rolls sign in the window, so I was sure to stop by the next time I was in the area. After that for a few years, I went to Sakura every time I was in SD.

I'm trying to remember whom I was with when I saw Kazu have the phone book moment, Ed. But, yes, Sakura did indeed have a sign way back when.
