The forecast at Tsunami Sushi Bar & Grill never changes: there’s always a heavy chance of sushi. More than 30 sushi and sashimi creations take up a good chunk of the menu, with ingredients ranging from smoked salmon to spicy scallop. Diners can set aside their chopsticks and slice into hearty orders of filet mignon teriyaki or Gal Be—Korean barbecued short ribs served with steamed greens. Tsunami serves its artful plates in a dining room that This Week in Sarasota calls “dark, rich, and casually elegant,” making the restaurant an ideal spot for a romantic date or suit fitting.
Kam?s Bubble Tea & Sushi's menu holds a surprising amount of diversity, given that it includes almost only bubble tea and sushi, as advertised. The chefs craft 34 different sushi rolls, ranging from simple tuna and avocado to a fruit salad roll-up or specialties packed with tempura shrimp. The other half of the menu also features more than 30 bubble tea options, along with a wide array of smoothies or a modest selection of coffee ingredients. Whether constructing a maki or firing up a blender for a smoothie, the chefs use fresh and colorful ingredients.
The chefs at Pacific Rim specialize in a fusion of Japanese and Thai cuisines and have left no stone unturned. The menu is massive?even at lunch, patrons have options that span from a sashimi ceviche to wok entrees to siam noodles. The dinner menu is even longer. It introduces grilled entrees, such as large scallops basted with curry sauce, and daily-special curries with a choice of proteins. However, Pacific Rim is most popular for its sushi, a dizzying selection of 100 creations that include sashimi, maki, and hand rolls. There are plenty of specialty rolls, of course, though guests are given the option to create their own signature roll from the sushi chefs' ingredients or whatever raw fish they have in their purse.
