I met the dynamic duo Ayaka & Masaki during lunch at their newly open restaurant: www.be-shock.com. A gem of a place located in the heart of the East Village in downtown San Diego ,CA. The co-founders are both from Nagoya Japan; they are hip, hospitable and humble. After a week of meeting them, Ayaka calls to hire me for their branding images. I was thrilled to co-create their vision and begin researching about ramen and sake. Part of that research is eating the food. The ramen is the best I've had in San Diego, taking me back on my first trip to Japan many moons ago.
This is a culinary hot spot anytime of the day and don't miss sake tasting with Ayaka whose a certified sake master in California.
