Following the success of their flagship restaurant in Oceanside, Love Boat Sushi expanded into Fashion Valley, San Marcos and onto Rancho Bernardo Road in 2009. At Love Boat, the fish is fresh and the ambiance buoyant with energy, with friendly sushi chefs adding to the high spirits. Diners looking to go big should order their eponymous Love Boat sushi dish, a plate overloaded with California rolls, tempura, spicy tuna, steak and chicken teriyaki and plenty of sushi and sashimi. Other local favorite rolls include the Hotty Hotty, Chef’s Specialty and Albacore Delight. For around $10, lunchers tend to opt for the quick-service combos, complete with sushi, tempura or teriyaki, with soup and salad on the side.
