Harney Sushi Restaurant Review

: A trailblazer, Harney Sushi is one of the first restaurants in San Diego to serve only sustainable seafood. Chef Robert Ruiz oversees his restaurants in an ecologically responsible manner by avoiding ingredients that are either over-fished or have a negative impact on the environment. But there are plenty of good eats at hand, like the spicy scallop roll with bay scallops, kanikama cucumber and radish sprouts, or the "Mellow Yellow" (which is not so mellow) with spicy tuna and shrimp tempura, topped with kampachi, avocado and sauce. Heat lovers will be drawn to the “flaming lip,” a tempura-fried California roll with cream cheese, spicy mayo, jalapeño and sriracha. The creative “not your everyday nachos” are made with Kurobuta pork, pickled fruit and vegetable salsa with manchego. Diners can explore a nice variety of sakés; try the Hakushika ginjo hot saké if you don’t know where to begin. Nightly DJs and a late-night social hour add to the hip vibe. Also located at 301 Mission Ave., Oceanside, 760-967-1820.
