Here was another revolving sushi restaurant that would be cheap enough to be accessible not just to students from that community college but also UCI, which wasn't that far away. It was, in fact, closer to UCI than Kula Revolving Sushi at Diamond Jamboree.
But Kula trudges and Sushilicious closed last October. Now another Japanese restaurant is taking its place. We don't yet know much about Miyabi except the sign, which says that it's going to be a "Japanese grill" and also offer shabu shabu. What does "grill" mean? A yakiniku? A teppanyaki? More details as they come.
