Eating at Tara Temple is an adventure in Asian fusion food. Many of the menu's Thai and Japanese dishes dabble in the unconventional. The Thai menu jumps right in, offering appetizers of whole squid braised in teriyaki or garlic-lime sauce. Entrees include the Wild Pork Delight—stir-fried boar meat in spicy chili sauce—and deep-fried soft-shell crabs.
The Japanese section proves similarly daring. Wasabi dumplings bring the heat, and yellowtail jaw (also known as hamachi kama) introduces diners to a succulent but less commonly enjoyed portion of the fish: the collar. Even more traditional dishes pose a challenge. For instance, the signature sushi is so beautifully presented it's almost a shame to eat it—though as with the Mona Lisa, if you don't eat it, someone else will eventually.
