In July 2009 Jugem was destroyed by fire. No telling if or when they'll reopen. This is the second fire in a historic building on Alvarado Street in two years.

One of seemingly dozens of sushi houses in Monterey (along with Pink Tuna, Sapporo, Ocean Sushi, Crystal Fish, Sakura, Kawa, Ishi Riki, Fuji, and more). Jugem has a prime location in the heart of Old Town, but not much else to distinguish it from others in the area. The four of us had the chirashi one night, which was good, but relatively expensive at $20 per person. The miso was good, and the beer cold.
