Kaito in Encinitas

SauceSupreme | May 10, 2007 09:24 AM

After a recent post-up on my trip to Nobu in Solana Beach resulted in responses informing me about Kaito, I decided to spend this trip down to SD in preparation for an omakase dinner at Kaito. I have to say, it's a wonderful spot, and has the all the elements that I like in a regular sushi stop. Great fish, a laid back scene, and characters behind the bar (I had the company of Ryo-san and Kazu-san).

Stand outs were the toro, the sayuri, and the anago, but I also enjoyed the monkfish pate (I recently had monkfish liver at Sushi Zo that I would rank as one of the best experiences ever).

I still need to hit up Matsuoka to get the total San Diego sushi experience, but so far Kaito takes top toque.
