Behind the sushi counter at Marssa, veteran sushi chef Kazuki Tozawa delicately carves up fresh seafood into unique creations as guests look on. One-of-a-kind fushion rolls include his hamachi fiesta, with crab meat, avocado, and tiger, which blends tempura shrimp with avocado, snow crab, spicy tuna, and sweet eel sauce. Authentic asian-fusion dishes include the pineapple miso salmon, which boasts seared miso that is marinated in Scottish salmon and pineapple chutney. Aside from seasonal fish that is flown in from around the world daily, guests can enjoy certified A5 wagyu New York strip steak. Marssa also offers a tasting menu and features homemade soy sauce.
The chefs at Noodle ChaCha Asian Bistro enable guests to sample dishes that span the major Asian cuisines, crafting flavorful bowls of vietnamese pho, cantonese barbecue, and stir-fried rice topped with a choice of meat and veggies. Ramen noodles steep in a spicy korean kimchi broth, and curry sauces liven up rice dishes that were sadly burglarized of their confetti. The shop pairs dishes with fresh-fruit smoothies, tea, and a range of fruity bubble teas speckled with tapioca pearls.
In 1971, Jimmy Nishiyama introduced the city of Las Vegas to Japanese hibachi cuisine. Three decades later, and the friends have stayed very much in touch. During that time, Geisha House, Nishiyama's brainchild, has grown to fill three locations and eight menu pages. Colorful specialty sushi rolls, such as the baked Japanese Lasagna?cream cheese and mayo atop a crabmeat and avocado roll?make fitting partners for grilled lobster, filet mignon, or scallops in hibachi dinners. Nearly 30 varieties of sake trip merrily across the palate, while the Geisha martini blends sake with plum wine and a treasure trove of James Bond jokes.
Rice and seaweed usually enclose the seafood in a sushi roll, but that's not the case with Taiga Modern Japanese & Thai's salmon mentai sauce roll. Instead, it's the salmon itself that encircles a medley of crisp asparagus, cucumber, and sprouts. Taiga's other rolls are made more traditionally and include the seaweed-encased shrimp tempura and crab mix of the lasagna roll. Those traditional approaches and flavors dominate Taiga's other Japanese and Thai dishes, from wild-caught cod steamed with lime juice to deep-fried tofu tossed in spicy garlic-basil sauce. Guests can end their feasts on a sweet note with Taiga's handmade crepe cake topped with green tea ice cream.
Fish comes in many forms at Sushi Katsu?coral-hued nigiri; artfully plated sushi rolls; breaded and crispy fish fillets. The titular specialty arrives in a variety of creative combinations. A Valentine's Day special, for instance, sees heart-shaped sushi rolls shot to the table via arrow, or diners can order omakase style, and leave the sushi decisions up to the chef. Complementing these oceanic dishes are beers both domestic and imported, so customers can pair their rolls with a bottle of Japanese Sapporo.
The chefs at Daisho Sushi slice and dice a wide array of seafood to create their expansive menu of Japanese sushi and Hawaiian poke. According to Eater, owner Lei Zhang comes from Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and brings with him a comprehensive knowledge of maki, nigiri, and sashimi. Special rolls allow the chefs to showcase their creativity, while an all-you-can-eat option fills hungry patrons to the brim. The dining room is a casual one, with wooden chairs pulled close to the action at the sushi bar and unadorned low top tables filling the rest of the tile-flecked space.
