Chi Tung began as a small Chinese restaurant in 1988, but has since evolved into a 200-seat pan-Asian kingdom that houses a hibachi steak house as well as a lounge area. In the midst of several growth spurts, owners Jinny and Dan Zhao have trained their focus on upholding high culinary standards. They parceled their cooking team into three separate kitchens, each one dedicated to producing authentic Chinese, Thai, or Japanese food. In these highly specialized quarters, cooks prepare hundreds of menu items, such as mongolian beef, shrimp pad thai, and chicken satay. Although the cooks work at a steady clip, they adhere to traditional recipes and techniques when blending custom sauces and handcrafting more than 100 types of sushi.

Sesame Inn’s mouth-watering menu whisks guests on culinary journeys through China, Japan, and Thailand. Seventeen stir-fried dishes, including spicy sichuan green beans and kung pao chicken with crunchy peanuts and water chestnuts, spring from traditional Chinese recipes like gold nuggets spring from fortune cookies. Chefs tuck chicken, beef, or shrimp into beds of pineapple fried rice or pad thai’s nest of egg-laced rice noodles. If diners prefer their entrees uncooked, the Kama Kaze maki showcases two types of tuna, and the vegetable maki arrives rolled with spinach, cucumber, gourd, pickles, and asparagus.

Though some people may only associate turkey with deli-style sandwiches or Presidential pardons, the chefs at Just Turkey have a much more evolved view of the bird. Using a bit of spice and a whole lot of creativity, they've worked turkey into a range of traditional American staples, unveiling dishes as varied as turkey chili, turkey lasagna with spinach, and even turkey nachos. And while it's hard to pass up a juicy turkey polish with fries or a spicy jerk turkey burger, the shop's specialty is its turkey barbecue, which includes plates of deep-fried turkey ribs and honey glazed smoked turkey legs.
