Unless you are specifically looking for 9 Style Sushi you won't find it. It's tucked away on a side street near downtown San Clemente in a nondescript shopping center with a convenience store on one side and a Mexican restaurant on the other. Step inside and you've arrived in what many locals believe is sushi nirvana. Recently renovated the tiny restaurant seats 12 at the sushi bar and 24 at the tables. The fish is melt-in-your-mouth fresh and regulars rave about the Garlic 9 roll with albacore, red onions and a drizzle of garlic sauce and the tempura crab nugget which is a Japanese mushroom stuffed with crab and wrapped in Japanese greens. Sashimi fans like the chef's choice plate but be prepared to wait. The service is attentive, families are welcome and reservations are recommended on the weekends.
