One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Dinner: Sushi Deli 3 in Kearny Mesa/SD

What's for dinner? Sushi's for dinner. This time our destination for sushi is Sushi Deli 3 in Kearny Mesa, San Diego. It's one of our favorite spots for cheap/inexpensive sushi rolls and a place to see a great variety of people enjoying the same food you came to eat. Besides, where else can you find beer for 99 cents to go along with your food? I don't know of any other place besides them...

We didn't want to get there too late. The last time we went there, there was a pretty long line. We ended waiting about an hour to get a table. This time we planned ahead and got there a bit early, around 7:30pm. Getting a table was going to take some time. We were prepared for this, but basically got the hook-up from the hostess and were seated to our table in no time. Kind of felt bad for the others waiting. But as the saying goes, "sometimes you win some, sometimes you loose some". This time we won...

I wanted something different to drink than beer. I took a look at the "Special Drinks" menu and the "Samurai" cocktail caught my eye. The Samurai cocktail is Soju, Sake and lime juice. It sounded good and gave it a shot. When the drink came, I really didn't expect it come in a martini glass. I was thinking a ball glass, but oh well. No joke, I finished that bad boy in 3 sips and then was looking for another drink. The 99 cent beer was in order. Then we ordered our sushi rolls...

After eating some light meals during the day, I was pretty hungry and ordered three rolls. The first is a San Diego Roll. The whole roll battered and cooked tempura style. Inside is a lobster mix with cream cheese. On top is spicy tuna, crab surimi, crunchies with spicy mayo, spicy sauce and sweet sauce. My favorite of the bunch tonight...

My second sushi roll is the Lobster Deluxe Roll. The Lobster Deluxe has lobster mix, crab surimi, lettuce, cilantro, asparagus, avocado, jalapeno and gobo carrot. What did it for me was the cilantro. Oh man, I just love cilantro. Another person in our group got this as well...

My third sushi roll is the Super Dragon Roll. The Super Dragon Roll's inside is shrimp tempura, crab surimi, cream cheese, avocado. It's topped with eel and sweet sauce...

The other sushi rolls that were ordered are the Dragon Roll, which is very similar to the Supper Dragon Roll. The Dragon Roll is shrimp tempura, crab surimi and cucumber. Topping the roll is ell, avocado with sweet sauce...

Then we got the Katie Roll. The Katie Roll is shrimp tempura, cream cheese, avocado and salmon. Pretty basic, but it tasted pretty good...

The last picture is the Hot Hot Dynamite Roll. It was the last order to arrive our table. It may be because it needed to be baked. The Hot Hot Dynamite is the same as a Dynamite roll, but baked with spicy mayo on top. It has crab surimi (imitation crab and mayonnaise) and lobster mix (lobster, mayonnaise and smelt roe). The plate presentation wasn't as presentable as the other sushi rolls, but at least it tasted pretty good. And really, that's all that matters...

We also got the Philadelphia Roll. But didn't take a picture of it. I think we all know what a Philadelphia Roll is and what it looks like. To be honest, I just plain forgot to take a photo of it. I think everyone was waiting for me to hurry up and take a picture of them as our mouths started to water. So, I rushed it. Maybe next time...

I'm not one of those guys who really nitpick sushi rolls. You know, snobs. I'm not that guy. Sushi Deli isn't the greatest sushi in San Diego, far from it. But they do offer one of the cheapest rolls out there, including the specialty rolls and to me, it's hard to beat. And they do get busy, so prepare for it. It can also be a bit loud in there if that's not your thing. And the biggest issue is parking! You might have to do some walking if you come during the busy hours. We just park in the Taco Bell parking lot. Besides that, I really like Sushi Deli and will continue to come back.

And as usual, I got to thank my BlackBerry for saving the day. I never leave home without. It's the reason why I have something to blog about, otherwise I would be experimenting new things without any visual content to share. And I'm a visual type of guy and I have to make it happen. Anyways, happy eating...
