Kabuki's menu features a variety of local and organic produce, as well as fresh fish sourced from Honolulu and the Atlantic coast. Wake drowsy taste buds with a starter of pork and cabbage gyoza, tender dumplings served with dunkable chili-soy sauce ($8) before moving on to an expertly flamed or flame-free entree. Sate aquatic appetites with a selection of freshly rolled sushi, available in classic varieties such as the crab-and-cucumber-filled California roll ($8), or the house?s own Kabuki roll, hosting a slumber party of shrimp, scallion, jalape?o, spicy mayo, and tempura flakes in a spicy rice sleeping bag ($12). Those opting for cooked fare can choose from globally inspired eats such as the miso-marinated sea bass ($20), or choose their own culinary adventure with a customizable stir-fry of vegetables, rice or noodles, and selection of meat ($12 standard, chicken $14, scallops or shrimp $16, beef or lobster $18). Finish with an of-age drink of wine or craft beer, or opt for the Sho Chiku Bai house sake (half $6, full $10) for a perfectly paired sip or apropos spit take.
