Downtown San Diego is a host to many fabulous restaurants and bars. Just off of Market Street (which is the main road of the Gas Lamp Quarter) is 4th Avenue where you will find an Asian-themed establishment called Gaijin Noodle + Sake House. In Japanese, the word ‘gaijin’ means ‘foreigner’ and this is what Gaijin Noodle + Sake House is embracing. Award winning Chef, Antonio Friscia, has spent many years traveling through Asia and the Pacific Islands and he wanted Gaijin Noodle + Sake House to represent an ‘izakaya’, which is the Japanese version of a ‘gastro-pub’ – a place where people can enjoy great food and cheap drinks.
