Every day, fresh fish gets wrapped with nori and rice as chefs craft Sumo Sushi’s signature rolls. The Sakura Lady roll mimics the color scheme of its floral namesake with spicy salmon rolled in pink soy paper. Other colorful maki include the avocado-topped green dragon and the rainbow, which, like a merman after a ticker-tape parade, is covered in strips of tuna, salmon, yellowtail, and fluke.
Not limiting itself to sushi, the kitchen staff invites palates on a culinary tour of Asia with its cooked chef’s specials. Japanese dishes include curry katsu, chicken or pork breaded in panko crumbs. Curry gets a Thai twist in dishes such as green curry with basil and red curry scented with lemongrass. Kung pao chicken is cooked with peanuts in the traditional Chinese style, and Korean-style kimchi lends heat to chicken or pork.
