The menu of contemporary fare includes items such as the Kobe burger with Japanese-style mayo, mushrooms, and mixed greens ($12), burrito-size crispy-chicken soy-paper wrap ($7.50; $8.50 for a combo), or eight-piece Big Texas snow-crab combo topped with jalapeño mayo and sweet-chili sauce ($9.50).
Sushipop sends the now-familiar fare of the Japanese sushi bar headlong into the future with its menu of Asian-Latin-American-fusion cuisine. The eclectic bill of fare runs the gamut from the umami flavor of pork vermicelli bowls and seaweed-wrapped grilled tuna to the unadulterated American decadence of a deep-fried Oreo cookie. In between those extremes, fusion dishes such as tempura-battered corn dogs and spicy-tuna-wonton tacos mix and match cultural traditions with a satisfying crunch. Inventive flourishes such as jalapeño-infused mayo and sweet-chili sauce spice up sushi rolls of crawfish, snow crab, and salmon; sprinklings of fresh bean sprouts, cucumber, and field greens add a touch of color and crispness to hearty Kobe burgers and tuna steaks.
Sushipop's decor and plating also advance a sleek, modern theme. Behind the sushi bar, chefs tuck meals into black lacquered bento boxes or artfully arrange them on bone-white serving trays. After placing their orders, guests take their seats among streamlined, battleship-gray chairs, where they sprinkle soy sauce from small capsules that, like Poseidon's fleet of custom jet skis, are all shaped like stylized fish.
