A small sushi bar with a covered dining patio at the edge of La Jolla Village, at the former site of Porklyand, this restaurant is helmed by chef Mitsu Aihara, who spent over 16 years at Sushi Ota. Himitsu translates to “secret,” but it’s also a play on the name of Aihara, originally from a town outside of Tokyo. Aihara never learned sushi in Japan, and he didn’t move to San Diego to learn it either. He came for the same reason as many 18-year-olds. To surf.
Both raw and cooked fish are well sourced and treated. Reservations recommended.
