Swirls of sauce and meticulously placed herbs adorn the outer edges of the platters at Sushi Go Round, epitomizing the chefs' creative leanings. Patrons can play it safe with standard rolls that include cucumber, spicy tuna, and california, or venture into new territory with specialty creations such as the spicy Volcano roll, which, just like a real volcano, erupts with tuna and calamari. Bento boxes pair chicken, salmon, or beef teriyaki with sidekicks of soup, salad, tempura, rice, and a soft drink. Also leaving the kitchen in small plumes of heat is bulgogi, or Korean barbecue beef, served beside a california roll and shrimp and veggie tempura.
