Executive chef Kevin Lee's 20-year career rolling sushi pays off at Japango. His skills shine at the trendy eatery, where he creates more than 50 varieties of sushi rolls, including the Japango Lobster Bomb—a bundle of tempura lobster, asparagus, and fish eggs encased by a shell of tempura lobster. Lee's experience with cuisines outside of Japan is highlighted as well, as the menu features dishes such as pad thai and beef and broccoli.
Japango's popularity has warranted an expansion to two new locations. Both hot spots mimic the original restaurant's modern vibe, characterized by clean lines and dim, tear-drop lighting, which sets the mood for a romantic evening or a tantalizing game of footsie with a table leg.
