Wild Wasabe crafts Japanese cuisine and elaborate sushi rolls, presented in awe-inspiring constructions and feature a mix of brown, white, and wild rice to form a purple hue. A Flaming Dragon roll roars from its ivory plate, hiding encapsulated shrimp tempura and spicy tuna beneath fierce fish egg eyes and horns made of carrot slivers ($9). The Fire Cracker roll crackles on tongues with a triad of spicy crab, tuna, and mayo ($8), and a Black Pearl roll ($8) assembles a core of eel, black tobiko, and scallion beneath an eruption of fried red onions and unagi sauce that only occurs every 500 years. Savor simplicity by snacking on schools of sashimi, quintets of fresh seafood such as ahi tuna ($8.95) or yellowtail ($7.95). An extensive drink menu washes down meals with Japanese sake, imported and local craft beer, and a gaggle of wine.
At Wild Wasabe, meals are nearly as much about presentation as they are about flavor. The sushi chefs deftly wrap fresh fish and spicy sauces into rolls, then plate them, into edible artworks resembling dragons, sunbursts, or American Gothic. The kitchen also heats up hot soups and entrees, and pours out premium sake, wine, and Japanese beers to complement meals. Diners sip while watching the sushi experts sculpt their appetizing works, or glance at the large flat screen television to fill their eyes as well as their stomachs.
