345 San Shi Go Restaurant Review

: Locals hang out at this South Laguna restaurant for its large sushi bar and reasonably priced Japanese eats. Situated on the second floor of a drab strip mall, 345 San Shi Go fortunately has a huge bank of windows, which shows off a sweeping view of the blue Pacific. The 15-seat sushi bar offers up classic sushi and sashimi. Signature rolls include a vegetable roll topped with salmon and thin slices of tangy lemon, and a California roll smothered in a spicy aïoli sauce and then flash-baked in the broiler. Those who want to go the izakaya route can check out hot and cold appetizers like poke with renkon chips, shishito peppers or fried soft shell crab. Combo plates come with miso soup, rice and salad, along with mains such as chicken teriyaki, grilled fresh black cod with miso sauce or a seafood pasta featuring shrimp, clams and calamari. Don't feel like heading to Laguna? There is a sister restaurant in Newport Beach on the Balboa peninsula.
