Skillful chefs at MK’s Sushi tuck fresh fish into fluffy clouds of white rice and slather meats in savory teriyaki sauces to craft a plethora of traditional Japanese and Asian dishes. For the dinner menu, culinary gardeners cultivate plates of orange chicken ($9.95) by watering morsels of battered-and-fried poultry with sweet-and-spicy orange sauce till they burst into citrusy bloom. On the sushi side, the louisiana roll ($6.75) wraps golden, fried crawfish, cool cucumber, and creamy avocado in a sushi sleeping bag with a spicy-sauce zipper, and the tiger roll ($10.50) hugs succulent crabmeat and three whole shrimp in a lush avocado-and-cucumber forest. For lunch, diners can feast picnic-style on carefully packed sushi bento boxes ($9.95), each stuffed with four pieces of sushi, a california roll, salad, miso soup, fruit, and a tiny mallet for impromptu games of lawn croquet.
When flights from Honolulu touch down at the airport, they occasionally offload more than just passengers—namely, MK’s regular shipments of Pacific fish. Behind the sushi bar, chefs roll traditional maki with this mother lode and gussy up their specialty sushi rolls with atypical ingredients, including mango sauce, mushrooms, and jalapeños, imbuing each bite with the melding of complex, harmonic flavors.
Extending their culinary gaze to create a menu of truly pan-Asian meals, the cooks also stir-fry Chinese-inspired entrees and grill orders of korean short ribs until they are as tender as a Shakespearean sonnet read in the original French. To punch up the authentic flavors of each meal, the kitchen team stirs and whisks together more than 40 of their own marinades, sauces, and spice blends, mixing tradition with innovation to create unique tastes that make each meal at MK's memorable.
