Sushi on the Rock Restaurant Review

: With energetic music, modern décor, a smart saké list and sushi creations that push the limits, it's no wonder this is one of La Jolla's hopping spots. The 911 roll kicks spicy tuna up a notch with its use of fiery sriracha sauce. We like the unique Barrio roll, which fuses Latin flavors like cilantro and Serrano chile with tuna. Appetizers include the coco-Korean short ribs with kimchi and sweet mashed potatoes, while Mongolian beef steak with red and green chilies will please carnivores. Vegetarians have many options, such as the wok vegetables; the Green Room roll with asparagus, sprouts, cucumber and avocado; and the Rainbow Warrior with tofu, cucumbers, avocado and lots of grilled vegetables piled on top. Don't miss the SUNKIST specialty roll with shrimp tempura, spicy krab, cucumber and avocado with salmon, green onions and a sweet and spicy ponzu sauce. Also located in 4S Ranch, and there’s an express version in Rancho Bernardo.
