The seasoned chefs at Tropical Sushi draw culinary influences from swaying palms and sun-swept beaches to craft a menu of Japanese entrees and sushi rolls with a tropical flair. A crisp order of vegetable tempura ($4.95) commences the fusion foray on a traditional note, and the nachos deluxe ($10) bridges culinary cultures with a succulent smattering of crab, shrimp, and scallops served on a Rosetta stone. Salty slurps from a bowl of miso soup ($2.49) or crunchy forkfuls of romaine lettuce and teriyaki chicken ($7.50) propel transition the meal into its second act. A lengthy menu of sushi rolls lets diners test the various chambers of the stomach by running the gamut from vegetarian and seaweed-less rounds to poultry rolls and deep-fried selections. The Americana roll swaddles morsels of shrimp tempura, crabmeat, and cream cheese within a seasonal coat of rice ($12.95), and the Paradise roll swirls a crown of tuna, salmon, yellow tail, and shrimp in a trio of specialty sauces ($10.95).
A confluence of cuisines produces signature smells and tastes at Tropical Sushi, where biculinary chefs prepare traditional Japanese entrees along with Mexican- and tropical-inspired dishes. The distinct food groups often merge with formidable results, including crab, shrimp, and scallop deluxe nachos, a meal made possible only after the tortilla chips’ father gave the union his blessing. Fresh ingredients ensure tasty meals such as the rendang, a spicy meat dish hailing from Indonesia that piles slow-cooked beef atop coconut milk, herbs, and white rice. Tropical Sushi’s seven varieties of fried sushi encourage diners to crunch their way to seafood centers.
