$20 for $40 Worth of Chinese and Japanese Cuisine
Like a land bridge across the East China Sea, an extensive menu unites Chinese and Japanese cuisine with meals of gossamer-thin singapore noodles ($11.95), curry fried rice ($4.75–$6.75), lightly seared tuna with honey-miso dressing ($10.45), and dragon sushi rolls with tempura shrimp, eel, and avocado ($13.95).
Beneath hanging pendant lights and lanterns swathed in red, the chefs at Nan's Sushi craft rolls at an open counter as servers deliver westernized Chinese favorites and Japanese dishes to tables. Seafood-heavy appetizers feature mussels, scallops, and crab, and fried tofu and crispy wontons pitch in to fuel eyeballs as they consider the rest of the menu. Makimono and temaki sushi rolls are studded with tuna, avocado, smoked salmon, and other traditional ingredients, occasionally topped with a smattering of fish eggs or a single brontosaurus egg. Diners can order specialty sushi rolls to swap with tablemates, or mix and match sushi by the piece. The Chinese menu proffers popular dishes such as egg foo young, pepper-steak, and mu-shu dinner plates, all doused in a special sauce.
