PB Mika Sushi

by Rodzilla on June 6, 2011 · 1 comment

I don’t have an official count, but I am pretty sure that the only things out-numbering the cheap sushi-spots on Pacific Beach’s Garnet ave are dive bars and head-shops. Of the 3, I like cheap sushi the best..that doesn’t mean I like it. 

If you’re looking for the freshest ingredients, expertly skilled chef’s, and an authentic Japanese ambiance..you won’t find it here. If you’re content with pre-cut fish, a lively atmosphere, and the latest from Lil’ Wayne playing in the background, you might be in the right place.

Soft Shell Crab Roll

PB Mika offers quite a few specials throughout the week, and cheap rolls  always draw a crowd. The staff is friendly, but the place get’s packed – so you may end up  waiting some time if you don’t speak up.

Eel, Mackerel, Shrimp, Yellowtail, Salmon, Whitefish, Tuna

I ordered the sushi special with a slight up-charge for a crab roll in place of the standard cali. I knew nigiri pieces at a place like this would likely be a mistake, but I was hoping for an outlier – I didn’t get one. The fish for the rolls is pre-cut, the rice for the nigiri is too large and falling apart. As you could probably guess, nothing was particularly fresh.

Even if you’re only looking for a stomach full of rice, sauce, and fried stuff before hitting one of surrounding bars, I’m guessing there are better choices even when strolling Garnet Ave. Next time I stroll by P.B. Mika, I’ll keep walking.
