New menu at RA Sushi!

by Erin

Tomorrow Xani and I are excited to attend a special dinner at RA Sushi (in Harbor East) where the chef will be introducing new dishes that promise to please both sushi traditionalists (we are def in that category) and those who love a hot new Japanese fusion dish. Here is the press release and a sampling of the new menu:

RA Sushi debuts a new menu today (Oct. 22)! Executive Chef Tai Obata included a broad selection of traditional sashimi options for sushi purists, and also created some surprising Japanese fusion entrées. Here is just a sampling of the new dishes you will enjoy...in addition to some exciting new cocktails:

  • RA Chips & Salsa: spicy tuna tartare mixed with cucumber, avocado and fresh salsa; served with wonton chips

  • RA”llipop: tuna, salmon, yellowtail, spicy tuna mix, lettuce, asparagus and cucumber, wrapped in lobok [Asian radish]; served skewered with a garlic ponzu sauce

  • Kaisen Ceviche: Japanese-style ceviche with cooked shrimp, scallops and squid, chilled and mixed with fresh tomato, avocado and salsa; served in a spring roll shell

  • Sweet Onion Salmon: thinly sliced salmon sashimi with marinated onions and sweet onion dressing; served with organic micro greens

  • Banana Split Maki: fried banana maki topped with whipped cream and fresh fruit; drizzled with raspberry and chocolate sauces

We'll be trying something new with this event, Dear Reader: LIVE TWEETING! Follow me (@e_pod) or Xani (@x_factor) on Twitter and read what we think as we are thinking it! Er...how about whenever we get a second to put down our chopsticks :)

Happy sushi-tasting,
