$20 for $40 Worth of Sushi and Hibachi Food
Chefs kick off the menu with appetizers such as rock-shrimp tempura draped in spicy gochujang sauce and wasabi aioli ($10) and hot pork gyoza with crème fraiche ($9). Then, they'll sizzle up hibachi entrees—such as sirloin steak ($21), salmon ($22), and filet mignon with scallops ($27)—alongside shrimp, miso soup, house salad, assorted vegetables, and steamed or fried rice. Sushi gurus prepare a huge variety of sushi and sashimi rolls ($3–$10) as well as specialty rolls, such as the deep-fried cream cheese-filled Ima roll stuffed with eel and salmon ($12).
Through an entrance marked by natural woods and a screen of latticed rice paper, the interior of Cafe Ima opens up into an expansive dining space replete with a sushi bar and rows of hibachi tables where chefs deftly manipulate fresh, sizzling ingredients on steel tableside grills. Crafting an extensive menu, highly trained chefs slice, dice, and flip succulent morsels of steak, seafood, and veggies on flat-topped hibachis to create a culinary experience more entertaining than Penn and Teller's famous cooking show in Vegas. Meanwhile, Café Ima's experts behind the sushi bar slice slabs of fatty tuna and freshwater eel into sushi and sashimi, and craft specialty maki rolls filled with deep-fried shrimp, smoked salmon, and broiled eel.
