Kumi Ko - Located in San Luis Obispo that's a couple of blocks from the SLO airport is Kumi Ko, a Japanese restaurant with sushi and other Japanese dishes. It's my favorite place to eat Japanese food when I am in San Luis Obispo City. The sushi is fresh, the bento boxes taste delicious and the service is reliable with good standards. You can them ahead to order take-out but it will take about 45 minutes. I prefer to dine in.
My bento box came with 2 options for a half roll of sushi and I glad picked spicy tuna with the spicy pork entree. Address: 3830 Broad St, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401
Mee Low Heng Noodle House - Located in downtown San Luis Obispo, Mee Low Heng serves noodle soups and stir fry noodles.
Try their dumplings as an appetizer. They put it in a hot and sour sauce that's delicious! The place is small but the building is uniquely 2 stories and reminds me of the medieval Chinese era. Many order take out as well. Address: 815 Palm St, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401
Fay's Fusion - Located in Pismo Beach, near the Pier, is a boba shop called Fay's Fusion. This place is legit! Boba is done right with the quintessential popcorn chicken with dried basil.
