No matter which roll they order, diners at Oishi Restaurant will likely be impressed by its presentation and new ownership. Red and white tuna stripe the top of a Candy Cane roll packed with cucumber and spicy scallops, and the Monk roll, a combination of crab, spicy tuna, cream cheese, and jalapeño, stands atop a painted web of dipping sauces. Entrees such as pork cutlets and salmon teriyaki can be packed into bento boxes at lunchtime or stretched out into full-size dishes at dinner. To drink, patrons can sip from a selection of sakes and Asian beers including Sapporo and Asahi.
With names like Godzilla, Spider, and Dragon, Sakura Ichi’s sushi rolls sound like something straight out of a horror flick, but nothing could be further from the truth. The decidedly enjoyable rolls include combinations of tuna and salmon, shrimp and crabmeat, or barbecue eel and avocado blended with mango, yellowtail, cucumber, or cream cheese. The menu's hot entrees pull inspiration from pan-Asian culinary traditions and include crispy orange chicken, steak teriyaki, and fried shrimp, which pair well with house sake, martinis, and beer.
Sushi Yun's menu opens up to reveal more than 40 specialty rolls along with nigiri and sashimi. Patrons can dine in or take out classic rolls such as the salmon tempura roll or the boston roll, which is flown in daily because it only grows properly in the fields of its namesake city. Guests can sit at the bar and keep watch over spicy-tuna tempura rolls as they are made, head to wooden tables for jovial group dining, or stave off appetites a little longer by participating in karaoke on select nights.
