Blue Ocean Robata and Sushi Bar is open for lunch and dinner to serve upscale Asian Fusion cuisine in the heart of Carlsbad. Succulent and always fresh, small plates include wagyu beef dumplings served with kimchi and a soy-sesame dipping sauce; salt and pepper calamari with lemon aioli and sweet chili sauce; and Bao Bao Buns, which are dumplings of glazed pork belly and napa cabbage slaw.
For your main course, the Tsunami Roll is a popular choice. This particular roll combines tempura shrimp, avocado, cucumber, and crab and is topped with seared tuna, green onion, garlic mustard, and a drop of chili. Or how about the Tango Mango, a roll of white tuna, salmon, and avocado layered with mango, wasabi, and chili? The "robata" portion of the menu offers skewered meats and vegetables cooked over charcoal, similar to American barbecue.
Blue Ocean Robata and Sushi Bar gets crowded during peak hours, so be sure to make reservations.
