Yoshino Japanese Deli – San Diego Poke Bowls

During a recent stay-cation in North County, we were lucky enough to stumble upon a great little spot called Yoshino’s Japanese Deli.


I guess you could say they are the epitome of a great “hole in the wall”.


Their tiny space is simple and to the point, but their production of flavors are huge!


They specialize in Poke Bowls, or simply put, “Sushi Rice Bowls”.  They have several types of poke bowls to choose from which are built around of tuna, salmon, spicy tuna, spicy crab, masago, avocado, and seaweed salad.  If you don’t find the specific bowl combination you want, simply ask them and they will customize it for you on the spot.



The spicy salmon bowl was probably my favorite because it had a great variety.  The sushi rice was perfectly cooked and lightly seasoned with rice vinegar.  The salmon was covered in a spicy mayo and covered in masago.  The avocado was super fresh and the spicy tuna mash was fantastic.  It was super fresh and only cost $7.75. I would probably eat one of these every week if it were nearby.



Jorgina’s favorite was the Tuna Poke Bowl.  This one came with more spicy crab, but didn’t have the spicy tuna mash.  Again the tuna was very fresh and flavorful.


We also opt’d for some extra seaweed salad since our daughter loves this stuff too.

So if you love sushi and need a quick lunch, Yoshino’s is a must try.  You’ll have to remember cash though, because they won’t take any plastic here.
