The name means "taste" in Thai, and at Ghin Asian Blend & Sushi, flavor always comes first. Averse to calling their dishes "Asian fusion," the restaurant's chefs instead refer their genre as "Asian blend." They aim to bring the nuances of many cultures' kitchens seamlessly together on the same plates, creating meals that are as artful as they are satisfying. The tom yum soup, for instance, showcases a Thai- and Malaysian-style broth made from chili and fresh lime, whereas a spicy, Japanese tamari marinade brings the heat to the tropical-inspired tuna poke appetizer. Maki rolls display similar melding, matching spicy tuna with macadamia nuts and beef tataki with jalapeno. Even classic American dishes receive a global update?burgers are topped with sweet chili aioli, lamb chops are sauced with a ginger sake tamari reduction, and cuts of chicken are given their own delicious passports.

Sushi chefs at Kazoku Sushi celebrate the ocean's bounty with colorful creations of salmon, yellowtail, and fatty tuna preen atop tiny mounds of rice. The sushi rolls pop with even more color?from the avocado and mango tucked alongside crabmeat to a sprinkling of red and golden tobiko. There are also plenty of sushi-free dishes, as chefs cook classic teriyaki chicken and specialties such as the pistachio-encrusted salmon served with a wasabi caper buerre blanc. And no matter the meal, guests can eat with a traditional pair of chopsticks or request a pitchfork.
