About this Business
From Our Editors
Sam Jung always wanted to own a restaurant. He began saving money at age 18, and launched his first eatery, J Sushi Restaurant, at the age of 23, all while a student at UNT. Three years later, Sam and his team of chefs and servers still float mountains of fresh sushi to customers on boat-shaped platters. They weight the decks of the mini vessels with creations such as the crispy roll—a deep fried combination of tuna, salmon, and Hamachi—or the cu kani maki, which replaces the traditional seaweed wrapping with thinly-sliced cucumber. Sam also crafts creative specialty rolls, such as the cherry blossom roll, which is presented as petal shaped pieces wrapped in pink tuna after being harvested from the freshest sushi trees.
