Kru Contemporary Japanese Cuisine reels in the flavors of the deep with modern twists on Japanese classics created by owner and chef Buu “Billy” Ngo, the 2007 Sacramento Region Sushi Masters “Best of Show” winner. Saddle up to the sleek wooden sushi bar and dive deep into a trench of menus that range from salads to sushi to meaty entrees. Kick off dinner conversations by ordering small plate offerings that tantalize taste buds with bites such as seven-spice-crusted ahi ($13) and lightly fried age-dashi tofu ($6). Then, fill up further with main plates of spicy, broth-based Asian bouillabaisse teaming with shellfish and tofu ($25) or a customized platter of individual nigiri ($3–$9 each) and sashimi ($14–$20 each) pieces. The chef special rolls demonstrate pescetarian prowess with such culinary creations as the jalapeno-speckled cindy ($15) and the great white ($12)—a behemoth coil consisting of calamari tempura, cucumbers, green onions, avocado, and Hokkaido scallops swapping investments tips while wrapped in sweet chili, spicy cream sauce, and tobiko.
Afternoon guests can quell mid-day stomach moans with a lunch special, which pairs their choice of one, two, or three ($10–$13) main options—such as chicken teriyaki or gyoza—with sides of miso soup, salad, and steamed rice. Or opt for a [sushi and sashimi lunch], such as the roll combo ($12), which combines tempura and a spicy tuna roll for a delicious duo not seen since Abbott and Costello fell into a vat of chocolate.
