Rick Hallor knows there's only one good way to hang a sweater. Keeping his customers' clothes from stretching out may seem like a small nicety, but looking out for people has been the central aim in every professional endeavor he's ever undertaken, whether it was personal training in Illinois or firefighting in Colorado. After relocating to San Diego to escape the frigid Colorado winters and boredom that stems from living in an almost-square state, he decided to put his helpful spirit to use in the dry-cleaning arena. He purchased Speedy Cleaners in 2011, and now he and his wife Calley work to extend the life of their clients' clothing within their homey and welcoming shop.
The family-operated dry-cleaning business not only cleans people's day-to-day garments, but also restores family heirlooms such as wedding dresses. Garment repairs can also be done onsite, as Rick's staff includes both a professional seamstress and a cobbler.

Because their art has a small and edible canvas, sushi chefs must specialize in precision. They pick tiny yet often intense ingredients, packaging them neatly together for the best visual and flavorful presentation. At Tabu Sushi Bar & Grill, the challenge of their task is doubled—they wield spicy add-ons whose heat must balance the crispness of the seafood. The spicy lobster roll, for example, tops its mix of lobster, cucumber, and avocado with a drizzle of Sriracha sauce. There's also the sushi burrito, one of several fusion appetizers that wraps shrimp tempura and crab in soy paper, primed for dipping in house salsa.
Stuffed jalapeños, sushi tostadas, and rolls with habanero sauce bespeak the restaurant's fascination with the southwest. Still, there are classic Japanese dishes to be had. Entrees of chicken katsu and miso-glazed Chilean sea bass make for filling dinners, whereas bento box and teriyaki bowl lunch specials satisfy afternoon cravings. Hand rolls package eel and salmon skin inside seaweed shaped like a cone hat, which the staff imports directly from mermaid parties.
