Rolled-up fare is easier to eat, which explains the popularity of pitas, burritos, and birthday cakes conveniently wrapped in whole pizzas. Munch on bite-sized rolls with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Japanese fare at Zoku Sushi & Asian Contemporary Cuisine.
Within Zoku Sushi & Asian Contemporary Cuisine's brick exterior, eaters clamp chopsticks around a menu of pan-Asian maki, sushi, sashimi, and entrees composed of fresh ingredients. BYOB sips increase challenges of chopstick duels and amplify bites of signature maki rolls such as the BLT, which emulates the popular sandwich with crispy bacon tempura, lettuce, and tomato kissed with masago mayo and sweet soy sauce ($8). Taste buds swim through myriad flavor pools with the chef's sushi and sashimi platter, a union of five sushi pieces and five sashimi pieces accompanied by a domo maki plump with tempura shrimp ($25). A Japanese rendition of curry accompanies the thoroughly seared katsu don curry, an entree that enthralls the mouth more effectively than mystery-flavored headgear with a combo of breaded chicken and egg on a bed of rice ($9.95).
Zoku Sushi & Asian Contemporary Cuisine
Zoku's sushi chefs roll more than 25 types of maki and rustle up warm bowls of pan-Asian cuisine. Crisp and flavorful components are found in all dishes, including Chinese appetizers, Thai noodles, and Japanese sashimi. Chefs serve up artful plates dripping with sauce, bursting with color, and hoping to be discovered and offered a food-modeling contract.
