There’s a lot of sushi options in San Diego but for a quick sushi lunch special solution in downtown, Sushi Deli 2 is one of my favorites. It’s right next to Horton Plaza on Broadway (next to the Baja Fresh). The pickup window is really quick and you can go in and grab your meals within minutes. Sushi Deli 2 has a lot of lunch specials for around $5, but Sushi Deli 2 also have a full sushi bar with a few sushi chefs to prepare your lunch right before you. Alcoholic drinks are also available.

Sushi Deli 2
Today’s Friday Sushi lunch special for $7.99 included:
I had the Caterpillar Roll which is a sushi hand roll with cucumbers, avocado and glazed unagi (eel) sprinkled with sesame seeds.
It’s packed with flavor – the sweet glaze of the unagi is great with the avocado and sweet rice.
According to their website, Sushi Deli 2 is the first Sushi restaurant in downtown San Diego to serve affordable fresh Sushi since 1983. That’s exactly what it is – affordable fresh sushi. It’s not high end gourmet quality like Sushi On the Rocks up on La Jolla, but overall it’s good for the price. I only had one not-so-pleasant experience here at night when my friend Gisa was visiting. (Then again I was on some low carb kick back then so probably ordered something horrible anyhow) We had sushi for dinner and it wasn’t too fresh. Lunch time sushi has never been a problem however.
