The Best Little Sake House this side of Osaka

Posting in a hurry this morning (hopping on a super early flight from SD to LGA) but had to share scenes from Yuka Nakai’s Yu Me Ya sake house in Encinitas, California with the Rikkers and Yele last night. When I asked Yuka (above) why she and her family moved to Encinitas, she answered without missing a beat, “well, I surf.” Her spiel on sake and Japanese cuisine is worth double the price of admission at this gem on Pacific Coast Highway 101 (think Cannery Row).

Hanging with the Rikkers always a blast.

  1. I love her answer so much! I’m from La Jolla originally (nice sunset pic). I’ll have to go here next time I’m home. Great Japanese cuisine seems like the stuff of dreams right now..
