Best Pizza Roll!

I went to Cafe Japengo for a birthday celebration and let me tell you, this place is upscale and finely decorated. I order Pizza rolls, if available, at any sushi restaurant I visit. Hands down Cafe Japengo has the best Pizza roll! I also ordered a Fifty-Fifty roll which was also very tasty! This roll has many things going, highly recommended!
Service was prompt and the atmosphere was good! Highly recommended for special occassions.

Don't go for happy hour

My friend and I are always looking for new happy hour spots in San Diego. She suggested Cafe Japengo. We went for happy hour on a Thursday and sat in the bar. The crowd was good, wait staff friendly and decor nice. We didn't make it by 7pm and missed out on the food and beverage discount. We tried again a few weeks later on a Wednesday and I wish I never had. We ordered the calamari, spicy tuna roll and a couple of drinks. After we ate, we were ready to order a couple more drinks before 7pm rolled around, but the waitress handed us our bill basically cutting us off. Then I went home thinking all was good, but I found myself hovering over the toilet around midnight. I talked to my friend the next day and she said she threw up also. My guess is they use left over fish for the happy hour rolls, because our spicy tuna roll was mashed up and not sashimi grade fish. Needless to say, I will not return.
