Tokyo Japanese Restaurant
It isn't just the delicate balance of flavors that makes sushi-making such a revered art form. Sushi chefs also take great pride in presentation, carefully considering aspects such as color and texture, to create a cuisine that's as pleasant to look at as it is to eat. Such is the case at Tokyo Japanese Restaurant, where chefs roll more than 25 different maki and create 21 distinctive hand rolls, using tender octopus, spicy tuna, or a distinctive mix of peanuts and avocado to differentiate the various choices. Guests can feast their eyes on their perspective orders on the photo-rich menu, which gives them a glimpse into what their maki roll will look like so they aren't as nervous when they meet it in person.
In addition to featuring meticulously sliced orders of nigiri and sashimi, the menu also features a number of traditional Japanese entrees. Crispy vegetable tempura, beef teriyaki, and hibachi-grilled shrimp each showcase a specialized form of cooking that demonstrates the restaurant's deep ties to Japanese tradition.
