Editorial Review of
Kemo Sabe is a staple in the Hillcrest dining scene, for vegetarians and carnivores both. Guests are greeted by the inspiring face of a Japanese Samurai which was carefully crafted with natural stone and earth marble. The impressive hand-made mosaic bar top represents a bonsai bush with color bursting flowers and vein branches. And, dancing atop the bar is a three-dimensional, life-size metal sculpture of the Shaman Kemo Sabe.
The creative and almost over-the-top eclectic décor still seems serene next to Chef Deborah Scott’s award-winning Pacific Rim cuisine. For starters, opt for dim sum and then sum, the chef’s daily selection of fresh sashimi, poke, and sushi. For dinner, it’s a hard decision between rich dishes such as the crispy tangerine duck with curried crepes and boysenberry chutney, and the more classically-creative dishes like the kahlua-peanut glazed smoked ribs with barbeque rice and watermelon-jicama-lime salad. Looking for a vege-friendly fix? Select menu items can be made vegetarian, such as good things growing- it’s like a patchwork quilt of different flavors, and a portion of proceeds are donated to the San Diego Humane Society.
