Matsuoka - Encinitas - it's over.

Sad news for one of the best little sushi shacks I have ever encountered, Haji-san told me last week he has closed his doors officially. He is not sure what he will be doing next, but will keep me updated of his location. I am on the lookout and will be checking out some of his recs. I will post my findings soon.

My Matsuoka shrine:

    Too bad. I loved your posts about the place and the pics. Clearly Haji-san could do the real thing. I feel bad that I never made it up there.

      He will be back, maybe not in his own place right away. I will post when I hear anything.

      I'm sorry to hear about your and Haji-san's loss. You put together a lovely photo tribute which speaks volumes on why you will miss the place...
