Chop Chop Grill whips up noodle and rice bowls using fresh, high-quality ingredients. Prospective noodle-slurpers can step up to the automated kiosk counter to order customizable ramen soups, filled with egg, bean sprouts, bamboo, ginger, and pork slices in a natural pork-bone broth ($7.25+), and set meals, which sidekick a tofu, chicken, fish, or shrimp base with miso soup, rice, and another option ($5.59+), without making human contact. Curry dishes make an appearance and are diagnosed with cases of mild or medium hot, which can be gently treated with thai iced tea, fresh juice, or an antioxidant-filled pot of green tea ($2.95).

A pot boils at the center of each table at Ten Shabu, where customers can consume traditional shabu-shabu, or hot-pot, meals. Thin slices of dry-aged rib eye, lamb, and pork disappear into a steaming vat of Japanese fish broth, tom yum, or one of nine other broth choices. Pescetarians can dig into a seafood combo of shrimp, mussels, and sea scallops, whereas vegetarians can order a tofu spread with shiitake mushrooms, spinach, and napa cabbage. The heat spectrum ranges from zero to extra-spicy, and all meals include white or brown rice, fresh vegetables, and udon noodles that eliminate hunger and replace broken shoestrings.

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.

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.

Patrons at Kingswood Fusion Pots dunk raw meats and vegetables in tabletop pots of boiling broth to self-cook a savory shabu-shabu meal. Pick the house spicy broth or one of five specialty broths such as chinese pickled napa, japanese curry, or martian glow-in-the-dark grapefruit with which to heat your choice of eight different boilables, such as Angus beef or lamb shoulder. Diners wash down their pair of plates by splitting a large sake, or slurp two iced teas, iced coffees, or sodas. As hungry duos patiently await their pots, appetizers such as shrimp tempura, fried oysters, and fried gyoza keep mouths occupied so they won’t spontaneously start shouting the ABCs.
