Eight Sushi Asian Kitchen
To call the namesake roll at Eight Sushi Asian Kitchen "bold" might be a bit of an understatement. Wrapped in seared tuna and salmon, it's packed with bacon, fresh mozzarella, and cucumber, and topped with wasabi oil and kabayaki sauce. The unique offering is one of the many options found on the sushi menu, which boasts more than 15 signature rolls and 20 classic rolls. And equally assertive flavors abound away from the sushi bar, too—the main menu features everything from green curry mussels to yaki udon brimming with thin-sliced wagyu sirloin.
No matter which dish diners choose to order or steal off of their dates' plates, the decor will provide plenty for their eyes to feast on as well. Located in NC Music Factory, Eight Sushi incorporates the industrial elements of the century-old mill building, and local artists add pops of modern color with large murals and graffiti-style street art.
