“The best deal in town.” That’s how a friend described the happy hour menu at La Jolla’s Roppongi Restaurant & Sushi Bar – so of course I had to go and check it out. And sure enough, my beloved Chinese pot stickers filled with shrimp and scallops and served with Tobiko caviar sauce, normally $14.95, are now half price between 3- 6 daily. Ditto the delicious pan seared sea scallops on potato pancakes. You can view the entire menu on their website.
In fact, all the tapas and sushi rolls at Roppongi Restaurant & Sushi Bar are half price during those hours. Sadly, drinks are not discounted.
Roppongi, long a favorite with locals, is located on the corner of Prospect Street and Fay Avenue.
The Zagat Survey praised the restaurant for its “unique new Asian cuisine,” but I am also very impressed with the design, which includes a large fire pit on the patio and sophisticated lighting indoors that shows off a beautiful collection of Asian artifacts.
In addition to tapas, the restaurant serves lunch and dinner. The end date for the half price happy hour munchies has not been announced. I just hope it’s still in effect when you’re in La Jolla.
Bargains are few and far between around here – and I’d hate for you to miss this one.
