I’m glad they are still around

I'm glad they are still going strong Kat!

Chowhound is a rarely heard or seen reference these days! Always nice to see when an old favorite is still there.

After all these years, I have yet to visit Izakaya Sakura! The no California Rolls story reminds me of the first time I ever sat at the sushi bar at Ichiro (I think); when we called for a reservation, we were told (rather sternly), "NO CALIFORNIA ROLLS!"

Kirk

I do miss the "old CH" S! Sakura was definitely one of the old favorites there.

Really Sandy! Wow. Love that Ichiro story!

Junichi

I remember Kaga Sushi in Chula Vista always had "Reserved" signs on all their tables all the time. If the master deemed you worthy you were allowed to dine.

Kirk

Yes, Kaga was in a league all his own, like Totoraku Junichi! I know you were trying to get to Kaga Sushi before he closed up; did you manage to do that?

Junichi

Yes I was able to have Sho-san's food one last time before he retired. For a little while he was working part time at Utage before they closed.

Kirk

Glad you got one last go-around at Kaga Junichi!

What a great story about pulling out the phone book. 😂

Kirk

That was hilarious Jan! Something that I'll never forget! ;o)
