Editorial Review of
Harney Sushi Old Town
Old Town is famous for margaritas and Mexican food; who would have though one of the city’s best sushi restaurants hails from the same area? Harney Sushi’s catchphrase is "Miso Harney." If you get the joke, you’ll immediately know what kind of place this Japanese restaurant and nighttime hangout is. Named after the street it sits on, the place packs party-minded twenty-somethings into its cramped interior seven days a week. Gorgeous rolls are dished out while a DJ spins laid-back grooves, while even the servers swing their hips. Sip some sake cocktails from the bar and chat it up with the good-looking person beside you—chances are, you’re crammed in shoulder-to-shoulder anyway.
What's New: Harney Sushi is now the first sustainable sushi restaurant in San Diego and only one of a handful in the nation. Harney knows that what you eat matters, recently cleansing thier menu of harmful ingredients that put our ocean in danger. Instead, they're making seafood that matters, benefitting both the ecosystem and our health. But don’t worry, the new Harney will continue to serve the same signature sushi rolls and specialty sake. A few of our favorites include the Maui Waui Roll – shrimp tempura, crab topped with seared albacore, avocado, eel sauce, chili oil, ponsu, green onion and masago; Flaming Lip – tempura Cali roll with cream cheese, topped with spicy mayo and jalapeno slices; Guns N Rolls – tempura asparagus, spicy tuna, avocado, topped with tuna, kampachi, welcome to the jungle salsa, tobiko, micro greens, togarashi and rayu; and Rollz Royce – shrimp tempura and cucumber inside, topped with tuna sashimi, jalapeno and money sauce hand seared and covered with garlic ponzu and eel sauce. Thirsty? Drink in style at San Diego’s only sake bar, featuring more than 25 award-winning wines and 40 of Japan’s best sakes.
