At Shogun Japanese and Chinese Bistro, cooks amass an army of fresh ingredients to fire up on a griddle at diners? tables. Here, shrimp, calamari, and sirloin morph into hibachi-style dinners as they sizzle in the heat and tumble through the air with the help of the chef?s spatula. Fresh fish and rice converge to form sushi such as the crispy roll #24, whose salmon and yellowtail flaunt a sauce as sweet and spicy as a valentine from a jalape?o pepper. The Chinese section of the menu brims with house specialties such as beef with stir-fried string beans and family-style meals of shrimp kow and almond chicken.

Kyo-chirashi: a special blend of sushi rice with baby sardines, mushrooms, and sliced egg; available toppings include shrimp and eel
Where to Sit: Sidle up next to the counter, where you’ll be able to watch chefs slice, dice, and roll sushi in the open kitchen.

Know the Difference: Ajishin's soups are built around two types of noodle: soba and udon. Soba noodles are made with buckwheat flour and have a nutty flavor, while udon noodles are made from wheat flour and have a fairly neutral flavor.

In between slicing, dicing, and flipping various items, the chefs occasionally pull out one of their classic tricks. They might stack sliced onions atop the grill and transform the cone of onions into a volcano, sending a pillar of flame shooting skyward as onlookers applaud.
