Rijo Restaurant - CLOSED

Rijo Restaurant is located in Harbor Court. They took over the Palomino space. The entrance is on Queen Street right before Bethel Street. There is a lounge and a dining area. The dining area has a nice view of the water and if you dine there around dinner, you'll be able to catch the sunset. Rijo serves modern Japanese food with some healthier options on the menu. I recommend trying the crispy tofu with quinoa, two way saikyo yaki butterfish, rennyu panna cotta, and the green tea ganache molten lava cake. The restaurant wasn't full house when I dined there but I still recommend making a reservation. Parking is $3.00 if you park in Harbor Court and get validation from the restaurant.

Doughlicious Pizza

Doughlicious Pizza is located inside the Samsung Plaza across from Walmart. The shop is towards the back of the plaza. On the inside, they have 2 tables with a few bar stools for customers to sit and dine in. I recommend eating the pizza there when it's fresh and hot. The crust is thin and they are generous with the pizza toppings. The sandwiches are also very good. It would be a good idea to go with 3-4 people so you can share the items. I went on a week night and all the food came out in about 20 minutes. While I was eating, the owner ran in and out to deliver pizzas. There's another person in the back that does all the baking.

The parking is free with validation. When you enter the plaza you will automatically be given a ticket by the parking attendant. If you get lucky, you can parking right in front of the shop. The parking stalls are small so you might want to leave the SUV at home. They accept credit cards.
