Umami Moto showcases the very freshest ingredients prepared by leading chefs to give diners an amazing selection of foods designed to please any palate. Many recipes are taken from age-old Japanese collections. The miso soup and lobster chowder have layers of wonderful flavors. If you’re simply looking for a light meal, try something off the Small Plates menu. Choose from fried calamari, lettuce wraps, tuna poke, Korean short ribs and many others. The entrée menu continues with numerous delicious choices including kung pao chicken, shrimp fried rice and tuna with wasabi. On the nigiri menu, diners will enjoy smoked salmon, yellowtail, lobster, scallops, and many others. The selection of sushi rolls is extensive and includes avocado rolls, salmon roll, and kampyo roll to name a few. The inside out rolls are tasty but save room for the umami signature sushi plates.
Kiku Japanese Cuisine nabbed numerous accolades in Express Milkwaukee ?s Best of Milwaukee 2012 and 2013 for lavishing guests with both a friendly staff that jots orders until 3 a.m. on weekends, and a vast menu of seafood-centric cuisine. Sushi chefs roll up more than 40 fillings into artfully plated sushi rolls, crowning their creations with creative flourishes such as fresh mango. Fish and vegetables can also transform from raw to sizzling with a dunk into tempura batter, which imparts a crispy golden sheen and keeps chopsticks too busy to assist with walrus impersonations.
