Shohko Cafe Restaurant Review: Miles away from any stretch of ocean, sushi in the desert is a perplexing concept --- but Shohko Café is a seaworthy restaurant. The fish, offset by rice and whimsical garnishes, is the freshest you’ll find in town. While the dining room is white and minimalist, the food is anything but. Sushi lovers are well-advised to order any sushi, sashimi or hand roll on the menu and mix and match to their heart's content. Try the bluefin tuna toro sushi, which packs a tiny punch of wasabi between a thick, tender layer of tuna and a handsome mass of sushi rice. There's also plenty to eat for those who don't roll with raw fish: the unique Santa Fe roll, assembled with green chile and shrimp tempura, for example. For libations, make sure to peruse the extensive revolving saké menu.
