OK, this is not my go-to sushi place in Santa Cruz generally, but a friend suggested it and we give it a try last week. Shogun was terrific, with amazing food, pleasant service and appropriate prices.
We started out with a generous glass of Chardonnay and a Japanese beer, and ordered their Shogun Peppers which are a battered jalapeno pepper with a nice sauce. Delicious, and generous for 2-3. We then ordered a Doobie Roll and a Spicy Santa Cruz, both of which were filling and delicious. Our only mistake was to order a third roll, and not because we didn't like it: we were simply too full at that point.
I felt that the ambience, food, service, and prices all made me want to come back. Next time, I would probably order some simpler rolls with a deluxe roll as a treat, but I think it's hard to go wrong. Shogun is a step above our "old favorites" in Santa Cruz.
