Bluefin Fusion Sushi Restaurant
4305 La Jolla Village Dr
San Diego, CA 92122
Bluefin Fusion is located in the UTC mall area, next to Cozymel’s. It replaced the former Peking Palace. I noticed it a while back, but never had the desire to check it out, given the lack of good sushi places in the area.
Thanks to twitter, I took notice of it, and saw a lot of positive reviews on yelp. I was so surprised by the positive reviews that I decided to check it out.
We went on a Saturday night and were told there would be a wait. Since it was Saturday night, I wasn’t surprised. After we waited for a while, we were shown a table. To my surprise, the restaurant was practically empty, so I don’t know why we had to wait so long.
The restaurant had a bar-like atmosphere, with lights that changed colors periodically.
The menu had a variety of rolls and sushi. The prices were about average of other sushi spots in the area.
After we ordered, we waited quite a long time for the food to arrive. It got to the point where my brother was thinking we should have just left.
Both my brother and I ordered a chirashi bowl.
The chirashi bowl was served on a huge plate. I guess this is part of the “fusion.”
The fish cuts were pretty generous, but there wasn’t too much variety. The sashimi was served with a huge mound of rice.
BF ordered two rolls. A rainbow roll and a wasabi roll.
The food was decent, but the service was so slow. It’s probably not a place I’ll revisit.
