California roll? Yawn. Spicy tuna? So five minutes ago. Masamoto and chef Johnny Cai push Asian standards into delicious new territory.
We’ve told you before, Masamoto Gourmet Sushi & Asian Grill takes sushi to another
level. And with choices like sea urchin, Japanese horse mackerel and roe of flying fish, you know these folks are serious.
Masamoto Gourmet Sushi & Asian Grill bedazzles its customers with its creative sashimi and sushi dishes. Did you know “Masamoto” is the name of a famous Japanese sushi knife manufacturer?
Very few items among the fresh, creative pan-Asian menu at Masamoto aren’t excellent. From fluke sashimi to tuna belly, it’s hard to go wrong. But it’s chef-owner Johnny Cai’s original rolls and the way he plays with texture and color that put Masamoto sushi leagues beyond most in the region. A Vietnamese Roll sprinkles tempura flakes over kani, avocado and spicy tuna, mixes in a little spring salad, then wraps everything in rice paper. It’s a mouthful, but it’s so, so worth it.
