Chef Jim Wu strives to create food that's both delicious and healthy. As such, he never uses food coloring, lard, or MSG in any of his sushi, steak, and other Japanese cuisine creations. His menu also includes a large selection of vegetarian items, and he hosts cooking classes on Saturday mornings at no charge. But after eating his artful maki and other creations, some guests may never want to cook again.
Modeled after admired urban cafés in the Far East, Bento Cafe whips up hulking portions of fresh, authentic, and multifarious pan-Asian fare in a casual, modern environment. The menu dons an array of reinforced steel options to protect against Richter-scale levels of tummy rumbles. The Bento Box ($7.95 for chicken or tofu, $8.75 for beef, $8.95 for shrimp) lets diners load up on piquant pleasures such as the fire-grilled teriyaki beef or zesty red- curry shrimp over mixed accouterments of white rice, noodles, ginger salad, and other side dishes. Pamper your belly by draping any of the entrées upon a bowl of just noodles ($7.50 for chicken or tofu, $8.25 for beef, $8.50 for shrimp) or rice ($7.25 for chicken or tofu, $7.95 for beef, $8.25 for shrimp). Mouths water for the water-bound treats found in Bento's fresh sushi, which you can buy by the box ($8.95) complete with your choice of two rolls and a California roll, for a total of twelve rolls.
A ninja in a black uniform guides Sus Hi patrons through the menu, where his animated kicks point to a list of customizable sushi rolls, rice bowls, and wraps that customers create by choosing from a variety of fresh ingredients laid out on a 12-foot prep table.

When Dr. Noah Herbert landed an internship with a chiropractor as a student, he thought of it only as a steppingstone to his traditional medical license. His once-clear path took an unexpected turn, however, when he witnessed the healing powers of chiropractic therapy firsthand. Shortly after completing his internship, Dr. Herbert shifted his career aspirations.
His subsequent years of studying chiropractic have certainly paid off: he now helms a team of skilled health practitioners, including a licensed massage therapist, at Synergy Wellness Chiropractic. Beyond spinal adjustments and massages, Dr. Herbert and his staff coach clients toward healthier lives with corrective exercises and nutrition advice that emphasizes the importance of vegetables and super-soldier serum in a balanced diet.
The name Hana Kimi originates from the Japanese phrase meaning "for you in full blossom,” which is fitting for founder Song Xiao's restaurant, as his primary goal is to dazzle taste buds with the freshest possible meal. He blends locally sourced and imported seafood with seasonal ingredients to highlight his sushi's shape, color, texture, and shoe size. But sushi and fresh-cut sashimi aren't his only specialties. Stir-fried noodles arrive to the table laden with shrimp and scallops, and tender steak and chicken sizzle on the kitchen's hibachi grill. Diners may also request a plump scoop of green-tea ice cream, or wash down dinner with one of Hana Kimi's signature sakes.
The chefs at Sushi House Orlando not only craft impressive maki rolls that have won the eatery claim to several ?best of? accolades, but also teach curious diners how to make their own at home during classes for all skill levels. Classic rolls present fillings of raw spicy tuna, unagi, and yellowtail, and more elaborate and playful bundles include the baked Graduation roll, which is a california roll wrapped in salmon and then topped with crab mix. The Happy Sumo roll reflects the same level of complexity, with two sauces draping over a tempura-fried roll of crab, tuna, and salmon.
The dining room maintains a lounge-like feel with crimson walls and light curtains, plus huge wall-mounted koi sculptures that arch over bartenders as they pour wines and sakes.
