Sushi may be synonymous with Japan, but Chef Adrian Rojas draws on international influences when creating Miyako Japanese Restaurant's menu. In addition to working in modern sushi bars, Chef Rojas has cooked his way through Europe and South America. The flavors he picked up along the way add tasty flair to each plate, whether he's rolling up sushi or cooking a noodle dish.
Chef Rojas and his team infuse unexpected notes into hot entrees such as breaded, deep-fried pork, or spicy chicken sautéed with onions and carrots. But it's the sushi rolls that best represent the kitchen's culinary fusion. The red kryptonite roll, for instance, combines spicy tuna with jalapeños, while the coconut shrimp roll holds tropical ingredients including guava and mango. Equal detail is lavished on presentation—rolls and sashimi can be strapped into tiny life vests and loaded into sushi boats, or served atop live models during body sushi events.
