Named Denver’s Best Sushi by ABC in 2010, Yuki Sushi & Robata serves up more than 100 unique specialty rolls, as well as grilled robata entrees and more. Pop a squat at the cherry-wood sushi bar, festooned with Asian-inspired art and soothing, cherry-blossom wall sculptures, and revel in the rolled delicacies dotting Yuki’s expansive sushi menu.
Note the way in which a trained sushi master expertly slices a thin layer of halibut or octopus sashimi ($4 for four pieces) without breaking a sweat, or crafts a clever specialty roll using rice, fish, vegetables, and nimble fingers without stopping for air. Daredevils can experiment with a rocky roll, an underdog that packs a powerful punch of fried shrimp, cucumber, avocado, salmon, and tuna ($12.95), or test their limits with the heart-attack roll, a deep-fried mixture of jalapeño, spicy tuna, and cream cheese that wrenches the carotid artery with a wallop of heat and a powerful rendition of “These Dreams” ($9.95). $1 sashimi and choice nigiri sushi selections enable piecemealers to decoupage their mouths with slices of tuna, salmon, yellow tail, and more.
Sift through the delectable dinner menu with an order of pillow-soft gyoza dumplings ($5.95) or golden-brown vegetable tempura ($4.95). Oodles of noodles shower shrimp yaki soba ($12.95), while vacuumed-sealed seared flavor marks the robata-grilled Chilean sea bass ($16.95) or chicken teriyaki ($12.95), both served with miso soup, salad, and grilled vegetables.
