The chefs at Okinawa Sushi elegantly compose plates with an eye for diverse color and minimalist design. They arrange triangular slices of raw tuna like upright dominoes down the middle of the plate and flank them with a verdant vegetable garnish. Traditional sushi and sashimi rolls share space on the menu with exotic hand rolls, classic Chinese entrees, and tempura appetizers. Diners can cleanse their palates with a specialty martini, boba milk tea, or Kirin sake bomb, which packs more punch than Mike Tyson before an extended road trip.

Some 1,500 miles separate China and Vietnam. But on True Asia’s menu, all it takes is a turn of the page to get from one place to the other. Egg rolls, spring rolls, and pan-fried noodles populate the Vietnamese section of the menu, as does the bun bo hue, a spicy lemon grass soup served with thinly-sliced beef. The Chinese section offers an even more diverse assortment of spicy dishes. In fact, one-third of the entrées pack a fiery punch. Among them is the hot garlic shrimp, a dish that lets diners soak up hot garlic sauce with various veggies before taking the remaining sauce home to fill up their water pistols.
