Gourmet Garden Restaurant
As the chefs at Gourmet Garden Restaurant prepare a sweeping variety of Asian fusion dishes, they do so with an eye toward nutrition. When they crack open the pantry, they reach for whole, natural ingredients rather than MSG or trans fats. For instance, chefs complete sushi rolls with sugar-free akai rice that contains 56 times the fiber content of regular rice or standard tissue boxes. They also accommodate dietary restrictions by eliminating gluten, oil, and sauces from select dishes.
Aside from these health-centric dishes, cooks craft traditional items such as shanghai boneless duck, sesame chicken, and grilled salmon teriyaki. Sushi chefs create maki in cooked and uncooked varieties that mimic the flavors of culinary regions such as Hawaii, Boston, and Alaska, as well as low-carb options rolled in mandolin-cut cucumber ribbons. Chefs tuck these items into a luncheon buffet on Wednesday, Thursdays, and Friday, and the restaurant adds entertainment to the equation with in-house karaoke on Saturday night.
