SUSHISAMBA Restaurant Review

: This eclectic and fun restaurant has a wide range of menu items, from seared Kobe beef with ponzu gelée, warm Japanese mushrooms, and truffled tofu crema to the "laughing bird shrimp tempura" served with radish, hijiki, peanut, and red miso sauce. There are also fresh oysters available. If for no other reason, it’s worth a visit just because its own particular brand of fusion cuisine hasn't been done to death yet. And no wonder it hasn't. The idea takes some getting used to, even though it makes sense eventually. Raw tuna with grapefruit, serrano, cilantro, and coconut is listed under Seviche. Well...okay, we get it. Move along to the next course: churrasco, chicken teriyaki and fish (fresh or raw...take your pick) are all available. The specialty drink menu is equally split-personality; it hops between saké bombs and caipirinhas. You may want to stick with wine, although navigating the wine list can be a bit tricky at times.
