The chefs at Kagawa Sushi Bar & Restaurant have been rolling maki and frying tempura since the eatery opened in 2002. Many of the ingredients for their raw creations come directly from the Boston Fish Pier, including the fresh mackerel and lobster found in some of their specialty maki rolls. New to the menu is the Kagawa fried chicken, an original recipe prepared with 12 herbs and spices (but no MSG), lightly fried in rice oil and topped with a soya sauce. The chefs' menu is complemented by a bar fully stocked with sakes, wines, and shot glasses filled to the brim with chasers of soy sauce.
