El Pandita Japanese, Playas de Rosarito, Baja California

Gypsy Jan Feb 2, 2014 09:27 AM

The restaurant is literally a cart on wheels, shoved inside a tiny mini-mall space next to the granero and veterinarios with the horse on the roof, across the street from Office Depot.

There is no indoor seating, just four metal stools on the sidewalk.

Every item on the menu is two-for-one, rolls and, I think the plates all for $84 or $74 pesos, which is well under ten dollars U.S. No sushi, though.

Maria, who is Mexican and her husband, David, who is German/Mexican, are the proprietors.

When I told her that my husband, who has lived in Japan, approved of her rice, she grinned from ear-to-ear.

They also serve a killer wasabi sauce (and I mean killer) and a lethal liquid table salsa full of jalapenos, onions and garlic.

Good food that can be as mild or as hot as you want - you are in the driver's seat.

And, of course, they have a Facebook page - Pandita Playas de Rosarito
