And just to throw icing on the cake, I always love a good social media savvy restaurant. On the table, Harney Sushi had a little note that asked you to "Use your creative juices and take photos of anything Harney: food, people, music, ambiance...even yourself!" You then just need to tag your photos #harneysushi on Instagram, and every month a winner will receive a $25 Harney gift card. Talk about genius! They got me to look up @harneysushi, and what do you know, I followed them. Instant and fun free marketing! I love when I feel like I recognize great business practice being done. I learn something. I find myself doing the head nod, as I realize how very clever and smart the business owners are, and then I invisibly tip my hat to them for their genius.
So back to the food. I am obsessed with their steam buns (pictured above, along with the rest of the spread from our mid-afternoon lunch date). These are a take on the traditional Chinese steam buns, except Harney has made them taco style and added a delicious pickled vegetable slaw. Sit that on top of their plum bbq pulled pork, and your taste buds just explode. So yummy. We also had their Bomb James Bomb and Rollz Royce rolls. Highly recommend those choices. Even their green tea ice cream was good, and I am not usually a fan of green tea ice cream. Paired with tempura strawberries and "cinnamon toast" crunchies, there was nothing left. AND, they even served Izze and Mexican Pepsi. Finally, they Apple-d it up, and we paid via a mini-iPad that the server had holstered on her waist. Fantastic.
So if you are looking for some good sushi and happen to be in Old Town San Diego, stop by Harney Sushi. Do you have any favorite sushi spots? I am always looking for great sushi.
