Restaurant Review: H2O Sushi & Izakaya in Costa Mesa AYCE & AYCD
Time to bring back restaurant reviews and here is my first one for 2016. This is my review for H2O Sushi & Izakaya in Costa Mesa. This is the only one of their locations to offer All You Can Eat ($28.95 per person) and you can also add bottomless hot sake and Sapporo draft to your AYCE for $11.95. That is a great deal. There is a two hour time limit which gives you more than enough time to eat and drink more than your fill.
Time to start with a bottle of hot sake and an ice cold Sapporo draft.
Started off our meal with the garlic chili edamame. Perfectly spicy and a perfect way to start off the meal.
Look at that color of the sashimi. Tuna sushi (on the left), yuzu tuna sushi and salmon sushi to start off the sushi fest.
Do not pass up the seared garlic tuna sushi!
One of my favorites at any sushi restaurant is the baked mussels and these are large and delicious.
Another one of my favorites is tonkatsu or pork cutlet. A thick cut of pork made me think of my mom's cooking.
The sashimi roll that has no rice was a great first roll.
A delicious Alaskan Roll with baked salmon.
You can even order yakitori on the AYCE menu. Here are some asparagus bacon and chicken skewers.
Love this dynamite California roll with the mushrooms, bell peppers and onions on top of the California roll with baked scallop.
There is even carpaccio on the AYCE menu! This menu is amazing! This is the spicy albacore and salmon carpaccio.
Our last roll is a crunch roll.
The spicy chicken was spicy and delicious with tender chicken.
The last thing we had was another one of my favorites, salmon collar.
A huge menu, a wide variety and great quality sushi make this one of the best AYCE sushi places I have been too. The addition of the bottomless hot sake and Sapporo draft make this an even better place to go. Make sure you go with a bunch of friends and have a great time. I also encourage you to bring a designated driver as well.
