After stints at Surfside Sushi in Pacific Beach and Michelin-starred Sushi Tadokoro in Old Town, Soichi Kadoya opened his own restaurant in 2019, earning a Michelin star of his own in 2021. Unlike Sushi Tadakoro’s edomae-style sushi, Soichi specializes in omakase-style fare, served three ways—a petite omakase with three tasting dishes to start, six pieces of nigiri sushi, soup, and homemade ice cream; a regular nigiri omakase with four tasting dishes and twelve pieces of nigiri, soup, and ice cream; and an eight-course omakase specially selected by chef Soichi. In addition, there’s nigiri by the piece, various cut rolls, and a big futomaki roll, plus chirashi bowls, chawan mushi, and an impressive selection of sake. Their fish is sourced from Japanese waters, and shipped same-day to the restaurant, so you’re getting the best of the best. Reservations are booked well in advance and sell out quickly, so check their website for availability.
