Anyone know what happened to Super Korokke?

Hey all,

I've had a major korokke (Japanese croquette) jonesing for the past month, but every time the fiancee and I drive by our usual dealer, Super Korokke in Costa Mesa, it's closed. Anyone know what happened there? Is the nice owner/cook on vacation?

I love that place. I really hope it'll open again soon.

  1. It was reported here that its owner passed away last year.

      No way! Really?

      I did a bunch of searches and couldn't pull up any additional info. Could someone link me to the thread, an article, or something?

    2. Oh no. I've gone to Mitsuwa dozens of times, but never stopped in for a "korokke".

      and now I never will...
