Reader Steve C. tells me that Mokutan restaurant, which opened at 716 State Street in August 2022, has closed.
that’s bad news. great restaurant with great staff and chef ken created some of the best cooked Japanese food in town. I followed him from his to other restaurants. Hope he find somewhere else to create. I’ll be looking for him.
I heard through the grapevine that Ken is now working at Sushi Hanada in Port Hueneme. The original owner passed away last year and his wife and long time employee needed some good help. If you are more into traditional sushi, Hanada is legit. My wife and I make the drive down from SB for their omakase.
thanks. have to check it out
