  • Hon Hong
    Fans of Chinese Food will find all their familiar favorites at Hon Hong, from spicy Szechuan prawns, to beef with broccoli, to barbecue pork fried rice. But adventurous eaters may find themselves drawn to a section of the menu devoted entirely to traditional Chinese dishes—think tofu with preserved eggs, and pork lungs in chili sauce. The chefs even throw a few crowd-pleasing curve balls in the form of sushi rolls and fried chicken wings, to ensure there's a dish to suit each and ever palate.

  • Rice Fusion Cuisine and Sushi Bar
    Lacquered tables lit by sunlight from expansive windows gleam in Rice's modern dining room. Spicy aromas waft in from the kitchen, foretelling the arrival of entrees that blend the culinary traditions of Japan, China, Thailand, Vietnam, and the United States. Some of these flavors meld within the dishes themselves: combining grilled steak, asparagus, and eel sauce, the Cowboy sushi roll melts away boundaries between East and West, much like a blast furnace full of old compasses. But chefs also cook traditional Asian recipes, such as a Thai curry with coconut milk or Japanese udon noodles with tempura shrimp. And they're accommodating of other diets, too. Several vegetarian dishes incorporate soy chicken substitute, whose tender texture pleased the writer of a 2009 In This Week review.

  • Kobe Cho Sushi Salt Lake City
    Although Kobe Cho Sushi earned a feature on Man v. Food with its incendiary Hell Fire roll filled with tuna and jalapeño, the chefs can also dial down the heat and showcase the delicate flavors of fresh fish and produce. The menu stems from the mind of owner and head chef Mike Fukumitsu, whose 13 years of sushi-making wisdom has been honed during numerous training stints in Japan. As an example of his dedication to high-quality ingredients, he seeks out Wagyu kobe beef for some of his premium sashimi and sushi creations. A few tables line the pastel-orange walls, but a large number of seats also surround the sushi bar, allowing guests to watch as the chefs slice, layer, and roll orders with the confidence of an encyclopedia salesman at a trivia competition.

  • Sakura Sushi
    As they slice fresh fish and roll seaweed wraps around sticky rice, the sushi chefs greet diners from behind the sushi bar. Upholding the affable atmosphere, friendly wait staff dressed in navy and white kimono tops then seat guests at clothed tables or on the outdoor balcony. After perusing the menu, guests bite into vibrant pieces of red tuna and pink salmon sashimi, along with more creative rolls, such as the spicy-tuna-and-jalapeño Cancun roll, which arrives garnished with green cilantro leaves. Meanwhile, in the kitchen, chefs fry shrimp tempura and grill marinated beef bulgogi, which pair well with Kirin Ichiban beer, wine, or hot sake.
