Traditional Japanese noodle entrees and teriyaki specialties abound on the menu at Ookii Sushi, where skilled chefs tap into the flavor reservoirs of fresh ingredients to construct dozens of sushi rolls. To generate the nabeyaki udon, culinary crew members lure chicken, fishcake, and tempura shrimp into a net of noodles before dishing the bubbling broth, like a witch's Thanksgiving dinner, into a special pot ($8.50). An extensive lineup of sushi rolls flaunts classic seafood stuffings and eclectic twists, such as seared garlic albacore ($3.95) and creamy scallops ($3.95). Cylinders of fresh spicy tuna ($5.95) mingle with baked salmon rolls ($7.95) and beef rolls ($5.95), and four types of california rolls ($4.50?$5.95) showcase real crab and imitation crab, which dons plastic claws for a popular Las Vegas cabaret act.
