While you would expect a modern Sushi and Robata bar to be trendy and offer interesting dishes, Blue Ocean Robata + Sushi Bar in Carlsbad, CA has a winner on their hands. It is hard to not walk into the restaurant and immediately note the very cool design, interesting design and very unique layout. As you make your way to your seating at the sushi bar, robata bar, restaurant or bar areas, it is hard to not stare at the roof and the hundreds of glass bubbles.
But don’t let the swank and hip decor distract you from the menu, which is equally as stunning. Today for lunch, my friends and I got to taste a wide variety of items.
We ordered the Tango Mango and Marine Boy rolls, Nigiri Sushi Combo (served with miso soup, tuna, yellowtail, salmon, albacore, fresh water eel, tamago, seaweed salad – for only $15), Togarashi Sweet Potato Fries, Grilled Chicken Teriyaki bento box, and the Ginger Butterscotch Pudding for dessert (gingersnap-sesame crumble, saigon cinnamon whipped cream and sea salt).
Everything looked delicious, and tasted equally as good.
Next time, I need to return at night as the robata is only served for dinner.
